New York Armory Show of 1913
This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Marjorie Organ, born in Ireland in 1886, was one of the first female newspaper cartoonists in America, and an exhibitor in the famous 1913 Armory Show in New York City. She came with her family to the United States in 1899. She worked for the World and New York Journal, beginning in 1902 at an unusually young age. Her comic creations included "The Wrangle Sisters," "Reggie and the Heavenly Twins," and "Strange What a Difference a Mere Man Makes."

Marjorie Organ married painter Robert Henri in 1908. His first wife, Linda, had died in 1905. He was forty-two years of age, she was twenty-two. They traveled to Achill Island in Ireland in July 1913, at first at the Slievemore Hotel, Dugort, then Dooagh in the west of Achill Island where they rented Corrymore House. The Henris left Achill at the end of September 1913 and, due to World War I and the Irish Civil War, did not return for ten years.

In the mean time, Marjorie Organ accompanied her husband on several trips to Southern California and Santa Fe, New Mexico. After spending eight months in Spain, they returned to Achill Island in March 1924, again renting Corrymore House, which they purchased in November for $870, including fifteen acres of land. Years afterward, Marjorie Organ was remembered by residents as a remarkably beautiful woman.

When in New York City, the artists lived at 10 Grammercy Place. Robert Henri died in July 1929. Marjorie Organ followed her husband in death in 1931, dying at the young age of forty-five. As of the late 1990s, her niece was living in their New York home.
