MOORE, George Belton

1806 - 1875

George Belton Moore was born on 24 March 1806 and baptised at St Marylebone, London on 26 May 1806, son of William Moore, an undertaker, and his wife Mary. George was a landscape, architectural and topographical draughtsman who was a pupil of Augustus Charles Pugin (1762-1832) and he taught drawing at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich and at University College, London. He exhibited landscapes, often of Italian subjects, at the Royal Academy and other exhibitions from 1830 until his death. He exhibited from Park Cottage, Saint Pancras, London at the Suffolk Fine Arts Association at Ipswich in 1850 'The Gondola-That in a Gondola were seen together, Lorenzo and his amorous Jessice'. In 1851 he published 'Perspective, its Principles and Practice,' and 'The Principles of Colour applied to Decorative Art.' George married at Brighton, Sussex in 1848, Ann Stephenson (1819-23 November 1878). George Belton Moore, late of the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich and the University of London, died at 221 Burrage Road, Plumstead, Kent on 4 November 1875, in his seventieth year, leaving his estate of some 3,000 to his widow Ann and children Mary Ann Lind, spinster, and George William, banker's clerk.
