Brit Ernest Moore was one of the most highly regarded portrait painters of his era. He was eagerly sought and commissioned as a painter of official and presentation portraits of prominent figures in local and national life; he was also known to have painted narrative and landscape subjects. Moore studied at Barnsley School of Art and when he was about 18-years-old, left to further his studies as an art student in London and later in Paris.

In 1909 Moore travelled to the USA spending 10 months in the District of Columbia and Kentucky, executing many important commissions. He was regarded as a painter of the “old school”, and did not like the impressionists and similar schools, but he was regarded as an artist of distinction.
