IE. II. ITloore; The name of this artist will be remembered by the reader of the Eagle as tho author of a large pieturo representing a SpaniBh beggar playing the guitar at tho door of an inn, which was oxhiblted in the Association Gallory a few seasons ago. Mr. Moore is n deaf mute who has been studying hie art in Rpain - but has now returned to thiB oountry and opened a studio in New York. The large pieturo montlonod abovo was somewhat crudo in its treatment, but ot - ior' wiso was a strong and masterly work. Siuco that work was oxecutod Mr. Moore has studied assiduously, and to - day he occupies a leading rank as an artist. His idylc is that of tho Spanish lljman school, and in brilliancy of manipulation will compare favorably with that of tho great masters who havo made tho school famous. One of Mr. Moore's latest pictures now on oxblbition at Qoupil's, ontitlcd, "The Pasha's Saddle," roprcsontB a Nubian sorvant carrying in his arni9 a gorgeously doco - rated saddle and tho trappings connected with it. The seat iscoverod with crimson velvet, richly embroidered with goldon emblems and the bridle corresponds iu cloganco with tho saddle. Tho servant 1b represented standing in an auto chamber which shows the rich arabesque decorations of the Moorish palaces, mnuy of which jot exist in old Spain as the relics of the early Oriental occupation of the country. Tho interior was studied from natnro and represents a room iu the "AJbarubra." Tho cuddle shown in iho pieturo wan given to Mr. Moore by some Oriontal or Moorish pasha, and is now in Ids possession. The embroidery in done with real threads of gold aud ovcry other part of tho work is equally magnificent. Mr. Moore's studio fi rnlture all partakes of the Oriental character and is of great interest. At present Mr. Moore occupies a studio in West Fortieth street, a fow doors west of Broadway, N. Y., and, aa ho says, "Tho latch airing is always out."
