About the Artist

John Joseph Enneking (1841-1916) was one of America’s first great impressionist painters. After the loss of his parents when he was young, and being wounded and taken prisoner by the Confederates while serving as a Union soldier during the Civil War, Enneking went to Boston to begin his career as an artist. He studied in Paris and became one of the first Americans to paint alongside Monet and Pissarro. Enneking was an early environmentalist, and his love of the natural settings and parks in which he painted, led to his election as Boston’s Park Commissioner.
