Thomas Moran (1837-1926)
In 1871 Moran went west with the Hayden Expedition to record the wonders of the Yellowstone area, making annotated drawings and watercolors later used to illustrate articles in the popular press as well as the official report. Moran's watercolors convinced the U. S. Congress to set this area aside as America's first national park.

A Scene on Tohickon Creek: Autumn 1868   
Minneapolis Institute of Arts   

Born in England, Thomas Moran came to America with his family in 1844. Moran painted this landscape shortly after returning from a European tour during which he studied the work of celebrated British landscape artist J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). This painting is number thirty-three of a suite of forty- two canvases that he produced between 1863-68 depicting scenes of rural Pennsylvania.
