Katherine Adams Lovell (1877-1965)
Katherine Adams Lovell was born in New York City in 1877 and died in 1965. She worked in oils and acrylics to create brightly colored impressionistic coastal scenes, landscapes, interiors, and genre. Children walking up a sunlit road on a beautiful summer afternoon, paths cut through a brush covered cliff, and small boats docked along the water’s edge are all part of her oeuvre. In 1929 Lovell was living at 32 St. Paul Street, Brooklyn, NY and in 1934, her residence is listed as Brooklyn.
Lovell’s early, formal art training started at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and then she went on to study with William Merritt Chase (1849-1916), Charles Webster Hawthorne (1872-1930), and John Fabian Carlson (1874-1945). She was a member of the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors (NAWPS), New York City; the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA), New York City; the Pen and Brush Club for women artists, New York City; the Brooklyn Society of Artists; and the Studio Guild, New York.
Exhibitions Lovell participated in include the National Academy of Design, New York City; the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA); the Society of Independent Artists, New York City; the Brooklyn Museum; the Ogunquit Art Club; the Gloucester Society of Artists; the Pen and Brush Club; the Salons of America, 1922, 1923, 1925, 1926, 1930, 1931, and 1934.
Lovell’s work is represented in the Wright Museum of Art, Beloit, WI and the Staten Island Institute of Arts and Sciences, Staten Island, NY.
