Later Victorian Portraits Catalogue
Henry Moore (1831-1895), Marine painter and watercolour painter
In appearance he is described as big, broad-shouldered and of medium height, with a full beard, ‘high intellectual forehead crowned by thick dark hair … keen eyes and aquiline nose’.  According to Marion Harry Spielmann, ‘almost to the end, he showed himself … an artist who, while conscious of his powers, lived under a sense of wrong’.  Others recalled that he was not attractive in manner, and ‘failed to make himself popular’.
