Emma B. King

Biography from Wickliff & Associates Auctioneers, Inc.

"Emma B. King devoted her life to the expression and interpretation of nature.   It was in the studio of Jacob Cox that she began her study of art, then in a local school, before going to New York to enter the Art Students' League, and finally to Paris, where she entered l'Academie Julien, to remain for three years.  In the succeeding years she has painted on the coasts of New England, in the Adirondack Mountains and in our own and neighboring states.  Her work is in oil and water-colors and includes portraits, figures, landscapes, street scenes and still-life.  She contributed murals to the Indianapolis City Hospital.  She is a life member of the Art Students' League and the Society of Women Painters and Sculptors of America, an organization enrolling many prominent women artists of this country."
