Just Moved

Mosler's canvas represents home as a haven in which the perfect American family still presides, even in humble surroundings amid the jumble of unpacking after a move. The tender, nurturing mother and the "breadwinner" father providing sustenance signify the pillars of a family that is stable and happy despite its modest means. As American cities were being challenged by increasing immigration, crime, and poverty, Mosler reassured art viewers of the power of the family unit and the potential for a more diverse national character once the Union was solidified. Just Moved displays the rich palette, high degree of finish, and lucid narrative that characterize painting at the Düsseldorf Academy, where Mosler studied from 1863 to 1866. Henry Mosler (June 6, 1841 - April 21, 1920), was a professional painter, wood engraver, sketch artist and illustrator who documented American life, including colonial themes, Civil War illustrations, and portraits of men and women of society
