This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Sidney C. Moore (1908-1991)

Sidney Moore was born in Haberville, Missouri in 1908.  He specialized in watercolors and showed his work in the United States and Europe.  His work included a marble montage of the life of President Harry S. Truman.  An exhibition of his miniature paintings was conducted by the Smithsonian Institution.  His painting Grandfather's Barn was a national winner of the Motorola non-professional art competition in 1964, and he received awards from the Texas Watercolors Society, the Watercolors USA competition, and the Smithsonian Institution and other organizations.
He owned Sidney Moore's Antiques and Country Store in Independence, Missouri.  He was restoration supervisor for "Missouri Town 1855" from 1963 to 1973 and also worked on other restoration projects.  He was a member of the Greater Kansas City Artists Association, the Friends of Art, and Antique Association of Greater Kansas City.  He attended the Kansas City Art Institute in 1931 where he studied painting.  He worked in commercial art until 1945 when gave it up because "it was stifling his creativity" and  he wanted to devote his time to fine arts.  He was later chosen to sketch and paint historic houses throughout the city for display at the Truman Library. Moore also completed a mural for the Independence Sanitarium of the Independence skyline designed to be "symbolic, historic, and significant".  Six of Moore's works were part of the Jackson County Bicentennial cultural exhibit in the old Jackson County courthouse on Independence Square.

Sidney Moore died November 23, 1991 in Independence Missouri.
