Writer. Born George Augustus Moore at Moore Hall, Lough Carra, County Mayo, Ireland.  He gave up a military career to live a bohemian life in London and Paris, and became a novelist of the 'Realist' school. His early works depicting low life include 'A Modern Lover' and 'A Mummer's Wife'. His later output reflected his interest in love, theology and the arts. Oscar Wilde quipped: ‘George Moore has conducted his whole education in public’. This strange 1879 portrait is by Manet. Died at 121 Ebury Street.
