J. C. Moore was the elder brother of Henry and Albert Moore. John moved to Italy in 1858 where he stayed for some years and became friends with George Mason and Giovanni Costa. He painted landscapes of Rome and the Roman Campagna that link him to the Etruscan School and are probably his best known works. — Dennis T. Lanigan
