  MORAN IN WALES
 
 
  Back    
  Mary Nimmo Moran   (1842-1899)

 
  A GLIMPSE OF CONWAY, WALES, 1882, Klackner 27. Gilcrease 1426.90. Signed in pencil, "M. Nimmo Moran." She often used this name to disguise the fact that she was a woman, since there was a disdainful attitude towards women artists. Moran was born in Scotland, and she and Thomas made several trips to Great Britain. This is a typical view for Moran, who liked to show a distant view through foreground trees. She gave it this alternate title: "Under the Trees, Conway Castle, Wales." It is an especially strong impression printed on thin Japan paper and in marvelous condition
