This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An active member from 1860 of the American Pre-Raphaelite movement that emphasized the essential uplifting qualities of art, Charles Moore was a member of the Harvard University faculty for thirty-eight years. 

He was born in New York City and became a painter in the Catskills of highly realistic landscapes.  In 1862, he moved there full time, living in a home just north of the Thomas Cole house.  He never met Cole, who died in 1848, but he got to know his family.  Moore took many painting trips with John Henry Hill, Thomas Farrer, and John William Hill.

In 1871, Charles Moore largely abandoned his own painting, which was noted for realistic detail especially of bushes and trees and ability to convey differentiations in textures.  He became an instructor of drawing and watercolor at the Lawrence Scientific School at Harvard University.

Three years later he became a lecturer at Harvard on the Fine Arts and spent the remainder of his career there, retiring in 1909.  From 1896, he was also the Director of the Fogg Museum, the first to hold that position.

After his retirement, he moved to Hartfield, Hampshire, England, where he pursued his interest in the Pre-Rafaelite movement and medieval architecture.
