Albert Joseph Moore (1841 – 1893) was an English painter, known for his depictions of langorous female figures set against the luxury and decadence of the classical world.The spirit of his art is essentially classic, and his work shows plainly that he was deeply influenced by study of antique sculpture. Artistically he lived in a world of his own creation, a place peopled with robust types of humanity of Greek mould, and gay with bright-colored draperies and brilliant-hued flowers.
As an executant he was careful and certain; he drew finely, and his color-sense was remarkable for its refinement and subtle appreciation. Few men have equalled him as a painter of draperies, and still fewer have approached his ability in the application of decorative principles to pictorial art. (Wikipedia.org)
