Born in Brooklyn, Kathleen McEnery studied with noted painter Robert Henri at the New York School of Art. Her work was of such high quality that she exhibited two nudes at the famous 1913 Armory Show in New York City.
There are two paintings, Colette and Mood, by Kathleen McEnery exhibited in this gallery. Although both are portraits of women, they say a great deal about two very different periods in the artist’s career. McEnery painted Colette when she was living in Paris between 1908 and 1910. This elaborate full-length portrait of a young French model, beautifully dressed and heavily made up, was exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1911. Mood, painted about 15 years later, reflects the more intimate, sensitive nature of her work after she married and moved to Rochester.
