Kathryn Cherry

1880 - 1931

Born in Quincy, Illinois, Kathryn Cherry became one of the most prominent artists of Saint Louis in the early 20th century. She painted impressionist landscapes, marine scenes, and florals. She began her formal art education at the Saint Louis School of Fine Arts and then studied with Richard Miller at the New York School of Arts and Hugh Breckenridge at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Cherry started her career as an artist working with porcelain. At the 1904 World's Fair, she won the only gold medal awarded to a female. Beginning in 1908, she exhibited regularly at the Saint Louis Artist's Guild, and was included in numerous exhibits at the Saint Louis Art Museum. In 1915, she became the head of the art department at Principia Junior College Academy, and turned from painting on porcelain to florals on canvases. She also painted scenes of Gloucester, Massachusetts where she spent the summers in her Rocky Neck studio.
