Biography  
Susan Ricker Knox


Born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Susan Knox excelled at painting portraits and figure works of mothers with children. She was also known for pen and ink silhouettes.

With the idea that art should be concerned with social conditions, she painted a series of 32 paintings in 1921 of European immigrants at Ellis Island. These paintings were exhibited at the Museum of Natural History in New York during the International Conference of Eugenics, and later they hung in the Committee Room of the House of Representatives

She studied at the Drexel Institute in Philadelphia with Howard Pyle and the Cooper Union Art School in New York City with Douglas Volk, and Clifford Grayson, and then studied in Europe from 1906 to 1907.
