" Edward Moran seems to be constituted peculiarly for an artist, for with quick perceptive faculties and a mind capable of reflection, the task of transcribing and translating with truthfulness the simple beauties and refined grandeur of the land and sea has not been to him an irksome toil, but has proved a pleasure; consequently his pictures have in the highest degree the quality of imparting delight to others. An appreciative observer can not fail to regard them as faithful and intelligent interpretations of the truth and the sentiment of ever-varying nature. - Philadelphia Evening Bulletin. " Moonlight, New York Bay. One of the finest pictures Mr. Moran has painted. One who has sailed up New York Bay by moonlight will recognize the scene in the land-mark, form, color, and incident. The drawing throughout is most excellent every stroke of color is laid on with consummate knowledge." [P. 39.]
