Edward and Thomas Moran were both highly regarded Philadelphia artists—each in their own right. Edward for his seascapes and Thomas for his exploratory works out West. This appears one of the only known works that they did in collaboration.
This painting has descended within the same family of the original purchasers. According to family tradition the painting may have been purchased or received in part from a donation that the family made to a fund raiser for the Union Army in 1864.
Collections: Edward Moran’s and Thomas Moran’s work is highly sought after and examples of each is held in every major American museum and numerous private collections.
Condition: Cleaned, relined and had some minor inpainting in 2007. Full documentation available.
