John Joseph Enneking
(1841 - 1916)
John Joseph Enneking was active/lived in Massachusetts, New York, Maine, Ohio. John Enneking is known for landscape-animal, genre, and still life painting.
One of New England's prominent landscape artists of the late nineteenth
century, John Joseph Enneking painted in a variety of styles including
Hudson River School, Tonalism and Impressionism. Although he
cannot be easily slotted into any one of those
categories, he was best known for Tonalist forest scenes at
twilight. Enneking had a strong, love and respect for the
landscape, and his conservationist views led to his election as a Park
Commissioner in Boston.
Enneking, with his wife and two daughters, made his first trip to
Europe in 1872 and stayed four years, which give him an opportunity to
observe the influences of both academic art and new styles, especially
Tonalism and the budding Impressionism. ... Displaying 750 of 19135 characters.
