  John Leon Moran   (1864-1941)

 
  A JAPANESE FANTASY, 1884. Signed in the plate, a brilliant impression on "Holland" paper. Library of Congress #1. John Leon, a nephew of Thomas Moran, studied in Europe in the 1870s, returned to Philadephia in 1879, and moved to New York in 1883. He shared the late 19th century passion for beautiful women in exotic costumes. "Orientalism" encompassed images of Spain, North Africa, the mid-East, and the far East. Long out of favor, Orientalism has come to be appreciated again.
