William Moore

Portrait Of A Boy & Dog

This fine portrait by British artist William Moore (1790-1851) depicts a young man and his treasured puppy. He’s holding a feather to distract the young pup while Moore captures their image.

His outfit dates to the 1830s and he appears to be wearing a tailcoat, white shirt, black necktie, waistcoat and white trousers. A hat with a light blue ribbon rests on his left.

William Moore was a notable artist and the father of Albert Moore (1841-1893). He’s best known for his depiction of Charles Dickens and also referred to as William Moore of York or William Moore Senior.
