This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Spending most of her life in Paris, France, Florence Este was a painter in oils and pastels and an etcher and engraver.  She was born in Cincinnati to a long-time Philadelphia family.  In 1874, she traveled to France with Emily Sartain and worked in Sartain's Paris studio.

From 1876 to 1882, she studied with Thomas Eakins at the Pennsylvania Academy and then went back to France where she enrolled at the Academie Colarossi in Paris. Returning to the United States, she took William Sartain's portrait class at the Philadelphia School of Design.

By 1888, she was living permanently in Paris and was an active exhibitor in the Paris Salons. She also exhibited in the United States at the Brooklyn Art Association, the Boston Art Club, and the Pennsylvania Academy.

She "painted in a unique style that doesn't appear derivative."

Este died in Paris and is buried in the cemetery of Saint Briac in the village of Ille et Vilaine, Brittany. Her works is in the Musees Nationaux de Paris and the Pennsylvania Academy.
