(1880 - 1963)
Henrietta Shore was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1863. Her art studies were at the Art Students League in New York, and at the Heatherly Art School in London, where she befriended John Singer Sargent. Shore is remembered as a major figure among women Modernists. In 1913 she helped found the Society of Modern Artists in Los Angeles, where she exhibited until approximately 1920, when she left for New York and Europe. She achieved international acclaim in her lifetime for her modernist still lifes, portraits, and especially her floral paintings, which were compared to O’Keeffe’s. Henrietta Shore was a resident of Carmel when she died in 1963.
