Albert Joseph Moore (1841-1893), Painter
Few people knew him well, for he seldom took the trouble to make friends, yet he was the most gentle and affectionate of men. His splendid Christ-like head with its broad brows and great visionary brown eyes was set upon an awkward little body … his usual indoor costume was a very long and very large ulster, far too big for him [with which] he wore a large broad-brimmed hat without a crown.
