The Turner of the American West – Roger Mitchell

Wednesday, 8 June 2022

The great landscape painter, Thomas Moran, deserves to be as well known here as he is in America. He was born in Bolton, Lancashire, emigrated with his family to Philadelphia but returned to study Turner’s paintings. Explorer as well as artist, he was a member of the first expedition to the Yellowstone and accompanied John Wesley Powell to the Grand Canyon. His great paintings of these extraordinary places were purchased by Congress and for the first time showed the grandeur and colour of the West, helping Americans to understand and appreciate their heritage.
