This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The daughter of Marie Theresa Gorsuch Hart and James M. Hart, Mary Theresa Hart was born in 1872 in Brooklyn, New York and studied with her father as well as with Edgar Melville Ward at the National Academy of Design. 

Betweeen 1889 and 1895, she was enrolled in antique and life classes at the Academy and won several awards, achieving some recognition for her "single minded devotion to the subject of violets." (Kapps, 251)  In addition to easel painting, these images also appeared on greeting cards and calendars.  Hart's first recorded exhibition was the New York State Fair in 1898, and her first National Academy exhibition was in 1901. In 1906, her work was exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Often working together on portrait and genre paintings, she and her sister, Letitia Hart, shared a studio on East Fourteenth Street in New York until at least 1914, which was the last time either of them exhibited in National Academy exhibitions.  Both of them later lived in Lakeville, Connecticut.

Hart contributed illustrations to Life and Judge magazines and illustrated children's magazines, Wee Winkler and Wideawake.
