Biography Kenyon Cox
Born in Warren, Ohio in 1856, Kenyon Cox was considered one of the
finest draftsmen of his day. He did easel paintings, portraits,
and illustrations for books and magazines, but it was for mural
paintings that he became best known. The murals, classically
inspired, simple in composition and muted in color, were commissioned
for public and collegiate buildings in many parts of the country.
His mural installations, many of them done in his studio in Cornish,
New Hampshire, include venues at the Library of Congress, the Appellate
Court House in New York City, and the Essex County Court House in
Newark, New Jersey for which he used actress Ethel Barrymore as a model.
