Biography  
Thomas Moses


Born near Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Thomas Moses, a painter of landscape and marine subjects, especially of Portsmouth harbor and ship portraits, began his career as a typesetter and an organist and music teacher. In the mid-19th century, he was the towns leading musician. He also wrote poetry that was published in the local paper.

However, personality problems with a church authority led to his dismissal from the the music position at the Congregational North Church, and he began giving sketching lessons to earn money. However, little came of this, so he moved to New York City, and in 1855, he moved to Boston. His first known oil painting is "Entrance Portsmouth, N.H. Harbour" of 1855, and it is his only known work of that decade.   ...  Displaying 750 of 1610 characters.
