This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Impressionist landscape painter Joseph Eliot Enneking (1881-1942) was born in Hyde Park, Massachusetts, the son of John Joseph Enneking (1841-1916), also an Impressionist landscapist.

He studied at the Boston Museum School with Joseph De Camp (1858-1923), Frank Weston Benson (1862-1951) and Edmond Charles Tarbell (1862-1938).
Enneking then opened a studio in Brookline, Massachusetts, not far from Boston, painting around Mill Pond, a quiet wildlife refuge. He also painted beach scenes, paths through woods, and the light at sunset in Rockport, Massachusetts.

He was a member and exhibited at the North Shore Art Association, New Haven Paint and Clay Club, Salmagundi Club, and Copley Society. Enneking also exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, in Philadelphia.

An Enneking bibliography includes E. Benezit; Mallett's Index of Artists; and Falk's Who was Who in American Art.


Biography from Roger King Fine Art, A - G:
American Impressionist Joseph Eliot Enneking was the son of landscape painter John Joseph Enneking.  He was born in Hyde Park, Massachusetts, and studied at the Boston Museum School with Joseph deCamp, Frank Benson and Edmund Tarbell.  He was closely associated with the Boston area for much of his career, and had a studio in Brookline, where he painted around Mill Pond.

Enneking was a member of the Rockport Art Association, the Copley Society, the North Shore Art Association, the Salmagundi Club, and the New Haven Paint and Clay Club.  In addition to the New Haven and Boston clubs, he also exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.

Where his father often explored the light at dusk and similarly moody landscapes, the younger Enneking preferred bright, sun- dappled canvases. 

His work can be seen in the Springville Art Museum, Utah; the Mystic Art Association, Connecticut; and the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Massachusetts.
