Biography from Dixon-Hall Fine Art:
Born in Poland, Ohio, Helen Kiner McCarthy studied at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women* (1904-09).  Her teachers were Elliott Daingerfield and Henry B. Snell.  Following her studies, she lived in Philadelphia where she shared a studio first with Mary-Russell Ferrell Colton (1909-12) and then with Lucille Howard. She taught off and on at her alma mater and became a founding member of the Philadelphia Ten* Women Painters in 1917.

In 1920, McCarthy moved to New York City and established a studio at East 40th St. in Greenwich Village. She began signing her paintings with her mother’s surname as her middle name from then on, i.e. Helen K. (Kiner) McCarthy. She summered in Boothbay Harbor, Maine with Cora Brooks where she built a studio next to Edward Redfield. She exhibited extensively at the National Academy of Design*, Buffalo Society of Artists, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts*, Plastic Club*, National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors*, and the Philadelphia Ten. McCarthy died suddenly at the age of 43 after a brief illness in 1927.

Deeply touched by her death, her fellow Ten members included McCarthy in two posthumous exhibitions, one in April of 1928 and the other in February of 1929. “An entire wall was devoted to a show within a show, a memorial display of canvases by the late Helen K. McCarthy which revealed her as an artist of versatility, able to turn her brush to still life, landscape, or portraiture, and to catch either the gay lilt of sunshine or the somber mood of storm and mist.” (Public Ledger, Philadelphia, January 29, 1928).
