This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born deaf in New York City, Harry Moore was a student of Thomas Eakins when attending a school for the deaf in Philadelphia. Eakins recommended he study at Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris where he became a student of Jean Leon Gerome.

Completing his studies in 1869, Moore traveled in Spain with Eakins, and he was so impressed by the landscape that he stayed several years. In 1872, he married and moved to Morocco and also went to Japan, having been encouraged by the artist Robert Blum.

His reputation was established by his interest in Oriental subject matter--- he along with William Heine, Edward Kern, and Winckworth Gay,was one of the first American artists to visit Japan. There he created about sixty paintings of Oriental subject matter including temples, gardens, and Geisha girls.

Throughout his life, he was a world traveler, living a lot in Paris, but he spent much time in San Francisco between 1864 and 1907.
