Link to this object

Ada Howe Kent was a Rochester painter and watercolorist who exhibited nationally with the American Water Color Society. Having studied with James McNeill Whistler in Paris, Kent became enamored of oriental art and accumulated an extensive collection of Japanese prints.

A daughter of John H. Kent, first vice-president of the Eastman Dry-plate and Film Company (forerunner of the Eastman Kodak Company), the artist was known for her philanthropic activities, most significantly for the gift of Kent Hall in 1916 to the Rochester Y.W.C.A. as a residence for women.
