Painter, Illustrator, Wall painter, b. 1856 - d. 1919

(b Warren, Ohio, 1856; d New York, New York, 1919) American painter and muralist. Cox is known for his easel paintings, portraits, magazine and book illustrations, and commissioned mural paintings. His work most frequently features his favored themes of Renaissance and classical imagery. Cox attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and in 1877 the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris to study with J.L. Gerome. After concluding his studies in 1882, he moved to New York and taught in the Art Students’ League. Cox’s work has adorned many public buildings, including: the frieze in the Appellate Court courtroom in New York City; the capitol building in St. Paul, Minnesota; and the Walker Art Galley at Bowdoin College in Brunswick Maine. He is also the author of several books on art criticism; his theories are known for opposing modernist styles in favor of more traditional, classical and academic themes.

[Sketch] The Education of Cupid. Venus teaching cupid how to shoot. Target hung on terminal statue with a pure Cornish landscape background, the extreme distance being Platt's riverview. Such is to be my next picture. I've been working at the sketch all the time your mother was in Boston. There's such a bully chance in it for serious study of action that even your mother doesn't object to the playfulness of the motive. To me it is a kind of relief from the horrid seriousness of reality just now. It's only in pleasant and peaceful times that one wants to be ultra-serious in art. Caroline [the artist's daughter] is going to pose for Venus -- white and gorgeous piece of brilliant rose stuff, a brand new material, which is the most glittery and amazing thing you can imagine." [Kenyon Cox and Howard Wayne Morgan, An Artist of the American Renaissance: The Letters of Kenyon Cox, 1883-1919, Kent University Press, 1995, p. 179 ] When exhibited in the 1917 Winter Exhibition at the National Academy of Design, The Education of Cupid was praised by a reviewer from American Art News for being "bright and light-spirited." A critic for The Sun wrote of the work more extensively, "Mr. Cox's effort is The Education of Cupid, in which every touch is worked out with clear, intellectual and perhaps cold precision. Venus, according to Mr. Cox, is an American lady, but Cupid, properly enough, bears a strong facial resemblance to the heroines of Sir Peter Lely, who, if history be credited, did indeed live in a time of instructed Cupids." Painted as a respite from the horrors of a world at war, The Education of Cupid remained in Cox's family until now; it continues to delight today. C

        KENYON COX (American, 1856-1919) May, 1890 Oil on canvas 15-1/2 x 30 inches (39.4 x 76.2 cm) Signed and dated lower left: Kenyon Cox 1890 FROM THE JEAN AND GRAHAM DEVOE WILLIFORD CHARITABLE TRUST PROVENANCE: Collection of William T. Evans, circa 1893-1900; Sale: American Art Galleries, Chickering Hall, New York, "American Paintings belonging to William T. Evans," January 31-February 2, 1900, no. 137. EXHIBITED: World's Columbian Exposition (Chicago World's Fair), Chicago, Illinois, May 1-October 30, 1893 (bronze medal); Grand Central Art Galleries, New York, "La Femme," March 6-August 15, 1984. This quiet and radiantly colored nude by noted muralist Kenyon Cox was once part of the pioneering collection of American paintings amassed by dry goods merchant and railroad financier from Montclair, New Jersey, William T. Evans, who was the largest collector of American art before World War I. Evans assembled three collections of American painting, the first and second of which he sold at auction, and the third of which he donated to museums--notably 160 works to the then newly-formed National Gallery in Washington, 60 to the Montclair Museum, and smaller numbers to other museums in his home state. Cox's painting, May, belonged to Evans' second collection which he sold at public auction in 1900. In the catalogue accompanying that sale, a biography of Kenyon Cox speculated on why paintings of nudes were less numerous at exhibitions than they had been: "Years ago our exhibitions contained more pictures of the nude than now, a fact that is explained probably by the important commissions for mural painting given out of late which have absorbed the creative power of many of our most accomplished figure painters who are not devoted to portraiture. Kenyon Cox is one of those who was formerly a frequent contributor of works having the nude for subject, and an easel canvas by him of the sort is now a rarity. His skill as a draughts- man and the fine decorative quality of his composition have been long recognized. His portraits, notably some small ones, are considered among the best produced by the recent American school, and his ventures in landscape and out-door subjects have been received with cordial approval. As a designer and illustrator Mr. Cox's work is widely known and generally conceded to belong in the first rank, because of its intellectual, scholarly composition, and, as in his nude subjects, its masterly knowledge of the figure." Cox's nude May, which had been awarded a medal in the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, was described in the Evans catalogue as: "A nude female figure reclining on a grassy bank, with a piece of yellow drapery under her. Trees covered with spring blossoms fill the left of the composition. Beyond, at the right, a stretch of landscape. The young girl is painted with rare knowledge of form, and the figure is delicious in color."

One of the finest draftsman of his era, Kenyon Cox distinguished himself primarily a major public muralist. His classically-inspired paintings were simple in composition and muted in color, making them highly legible and easy on the eyes. Cox painted the present work in 1893, the same year in which The World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago finally provided him with an opportunity to paint murals on a grand scale. It also gave impetus to a much broader interest in murals for public spaces. From then until 1913, Cox created a series of monumental allegorical murals. He was also a long-time teacher at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design, as well as an art critic for the Nation and Scribner's. He did much of his writing in Cornish, New Hampshire where he and his wife, Louise Howland Cox, were a part of the art colony there.
