L.C. King
James Felder (06/01/2009)
We were at a swap meet in San Diego about 10 years ago when we walked up to a booth. The vendor was not doing well at selling that day. He asked me if I knew art? Saying no, I noticed the painting of flowers and the artist name L.C.King was the signature. We bought it for $17.00 I could not find that name anywhere but, we kept the painting. Today, I am about to retire and are planning to sell my collection. I came here (askart) and found her. What a surprise!!

Constance Douglas (09/12/2007)
I have a card by M.F. Tobin. It seems different than my other cards. Is M.F. Tobin Famous? Thanks Constance

Renee (09/07/2007)
The remarque is a hand drawing or etching added by the artist. See my posting of 6/23/07. They are not an afterthought but a 'remark' about the print subject. Do a little research. Search for etching remarques on a search engine.

Louise Cox - Old Bay Road
Susan (08/04/2007)
Hi Nathanial Hawthorne's House is in Salem of which she did a print of - also the location of Old Bay Road... a very historic road. Does anyone who has the print of Nathaniel's house notice her mistake on one of the windows?

L.H. King
Renee (07/04/2007)
I never paid more than 40 for any of the 3 I have - but that was 20 years ago and 1 has a lot of damage from poor framing - the paper is really brown. The thing with prints and especially if it was a give away from Fleishmans, like at least one of mine was, I don't think they have a lot of value - supply and demand. They are not numbered so there could have been thousands.

Renee (06/23/2007)
I have the same one with the house, bridge and boat with 'remarque' of little church in bottom left. The remarque is an original hand drawing by the artist painted or drawn onto the limited edition. Sometimes it was a comment on the print - for example on my Little Church print are two hands shaking. I found the notes I took off the back of the Home of Nathaniel Hawthorne. It reads No. 69 Home of Nathaniel Hawthorne. Presented by the Fleishmann Co. 701 Washington St, NYC. Original manufacturer introduces and distributes in the United States and Canada of Compressed Yeast.

Mandy (06/14/2007)
I have a untitled print. Copyrighted in 1897 by M.F. Tobin in NY. Signed on the print on the left side. Lower under that signature is a small picture of a church. Signed in pencil lower on the right side. The sketch depicts a road with a bridge, a pond with a boat on the right side, behind that is a old farm house maybe and several other buildings in the background. Possibly a church - there's a steeple sticking up. Beautiful peice. I am wondering if anyone would have any info on this? I would love to know where the sketch is of? It's framed in a beautiful frame and plain white matte. Probably added later. Any info would be appreciated.

L.H. King
Renee (06/02/2007)
I have 3, Little Church around the Corner (which is in NYC), an untitled one and The Home of Nathaniel Hawthorne. When I was having one of them reframed (in the 80s) and took it out of the old frame - on the back is stuff about Fleishmans company, of course I can not put my hands on the copy I made of it but I will continue to look I come across it now and then. I got the impression that the prints of historical places were give aways or something from Fleishmans Company. It had the name of the print, a number in a series - not a print run series, but a series of different places.

Happy Hours

Photos of Louise King Cox

By the way, there are some photographs of Louise in the Allyn Cox Papers at the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution. They can be viewed online

Ancestry of Louise King Cox
Janet Potts (04/12/2006)
Louise's parents are James C. King and Anna T. Stott. The "Howland" apparently comes in further back in her Stott ancestry. Some tragedy in Louise's youth as her father murdered a man when she was seven and was sentenced to life in prison. I don't imagine she talked of it much and that's probably why it's so hard to find biographical info about her. I have pieced together quite a bit on her ancestry, if anyone is interested.

Value of LH King Etchings
Peter Ramaglia (03/31/2006)
Louise was born into the King and Howland families. I believe her father's last name was King and her mother's was Howland. She went by Louise King when she was in school as an art student. Later she used "H" from Howland as her middle initial. Then after studying art with Kenyon Cox she married him and took the name Louise Howland King Cox. I found a gallery selling a signed etching by LH King titled "Down a Swanee River". The asking price is $1,200.00!!! I also found one of her paintings titled"The faithful Sitter" and the asking price is $16,500.00 For more info about her search on "Cornish Colony" on New Hampshire.

Louise Howland Cox King
Peter Ramaglia (03/26/2006)
Louise Howland Cox was born in San Francisco and studied art at the National Academy of Design with her future husband Kenyon Cox, as well as at the Art Students League in New York. Cox and her husband created the murals decorating the Liberal Arts Building at the 1893 Exposition and were part of the Cornish Art Colony in New Hampshire. Her son Allyn Cox also became a mural painter. It seems that Louise did a number of etchings that wer reproduced by a publisher in New York. These copies were signed in pencil by the artist. How many were printed of each is a mystery. Louise might have released 500 or 5,000,000 of each. I'm still trying to find out that information myself. I have 3 of her etchings.

Debra Landolph (03/23/2006)
I have a b/w sketch IN A Beautiful antique frame ....LOOKS LIKE IT WAS HAND signed BY PENCIL L.H.KING... very old probally late 1800's . THE NAME IS "THIS OLD KENTUCKY ROAD' it also has some type of a SPOON design??? under the Title . ALONG WITH HER NAME PRINTED ABOVE THE TITLE 'L.H.KING' It looks orginial but i do not want to open back of frame for fear it might crumble. i have been researching this artist for quite some time NOW...UNDER THESE NAMES: Louise King ,Louise HOWLAND KING , LOUISE COX,. ALONG WITH L.H.KING...but now seem to be going around in circles. i know she was married to Kenyon Cox and a few of her paintings have sold. ALSO she has her name listed in quite a few biographys.(DID NOT RESEARCH ANY INFO LISTED IN BOOKS YET) CAN ANYONE SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS SUBECT? ...ALSO I am told this photograph was handed down by the Family of Davey Crockett's Grandfather or a relative. I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY KNOWLEDGE ANYONE WOULD HAVE TO OFFER VERY VERY MUCH. I LIVE NEAR PHILADELPHIA.PA.AND AM .VERY CLOSE TO THE PHILADELPHIA MUSEUM OF ART....ANY SUGGESTIONS OR KNOWLEDAGE OUT THERE? THANKS FOR YOU TIME!

location of Old Bay Road
Janet Potts (10/29/2005)
Louise King was born in San Francisco, but her family had moved east by the time she was five, and I don't believe she ever lived in California again. In the late 1890s she and husband Kenyon Cox lived in New York City and spent their summers in Cornish, New Hampshire. Louise also frequently visited a friend who lived in Belmont, Mass during that period. So my guess is that the Old Bay Road she sketched is in either New Hampshire or Massachusetts. PS Louise King Cox died in 1945 so was not the Louise King who appeared in Seven Year Itch and married Peter Collins.

Etching of Little Church
Peter Ramaglia (10/26/2005)
My wife is certain that the etching of the Little Church Around the Corner is St. Francis of Assisi in Mt Kisco, NY.

Louise King's etching of Old Bay Road
Peter Ramaglia (10/26/2005)
Just a thought... Louise King's etching of Old Bay Road was probably done in San Franciso. She lived there and there is an Old Bay Highway that runs along the bay. It probably was just a road back in 1897 and not called a highway until sometime much, much later in the 20th century.

Louise King
Jean de Barsy (05/13/2002)
Louise King appeared in the movie "A 7 year itch" among others and married the famous racing pilot Peter Collins on february 1957. Peter Collins was like a 2nd son for Enzo Ferrari and they received a house in the Modena area. After a while they left Italy to live on their yacht "Mipooka" in Monte Carlo Harbour where all Monaco stared as they left in their special bodied Ferrari 250 convertible. When Peter died on the Nurburgring, Louise sold the boat and returned to America
