The following biography is provided by Stephanie A. Strass. In 1996, she was Guest Curator in Hagerstown, Maryland for the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts exhibit titled: "The Landscapes of Benson Bond Moore."

Benson Bond Moore, landscape and animal-portrait painter, and etcher, was born in Washington DC and lived there for seventy years. He became a noted painter of scenes of nature, and his style early in his career showed the Barbizon School influence but later became more Impressionist and less Tonalist. His snow scenes were especially popular.

He was raised in the art world, learning framing and restoration from his father, who did this type of work for leading political figures in the nation's capitol city.
