Moore initially earned a living as a lithographic draftsman, until, at the age of 27, he was able to support himself as an independent artist and from about 1880, exhibited his work regularly at The Nottingham Castle Art Museum, The Nottingham Society of Artists and at other towns in the region.
Moore's father, Thomas Cooper Moore, was a founder-member of the Nottingham Society of Artists and besides pursuing his career as an architect, still found time to create many attractive pictures and teach and encourage his sons with their artistic skills.
Claude, his father and brother Reuben (more commonly spelt Rubens) Arthur were all praised for their scenes of Old Nottingham and captured many scenes of disappearing Britain, featuring country life and buildings of character, working with line drawings, monochrome, watercolors and oils.
One of the Derby exhibits was "Fair-day in the Morledge", depicting a bustling city centre Easter fair, at Derby, see image in the right hand panel. This picture, now in the possession of the Derby Museum and Art Gallery, was exhibited at Mr. Keene’s picture exhibition in Derby, according to the Derby Mercury of 31/05/1882, by T. C. Moore but is now attributed to Claude T. S.
By 1891, Claude T. S. had declared himself an Artist, Marine; his pictures are predominantly river scenes or coastal scenes with vessels drawn in intimate detail, always with dramatic lighting effects. Claude had a studio in Nottingham but worked mainly in London from 1882 and painted many London scenes, some of the most prominent being his views of the Thames, its wharves, ships; and his views of The Houses of Parliament and Westminster, from the river.
One painting, called The Pool of London, which was created jointly by Claude and his father in 1879, sold at auction in 1999 for £12,000.
With an estimate of £4000 - £6000 in a London high street gallery
