Kathleen McEnery’s artistic career drastically changed course after her marriage to Frank Cunningham and subsequent relocation to Rochester. Early on, she studied in New York City with Robert Henri, exhibited two paintings in the pioneering 1913 Armory Show, and continued her education in Paris. Although she continued to paint, her work consisted primarily of intimate portraits of friends and acquaintances. Marjorie Quetchenbach, one of McEnery’s friends, served as the model for this portrait. The title Mood, however, identifies the moment and personality of the sitter rather than her name.
