She was brought up at Glenageary Hall, Co. Dublin and went to school at St. Mary's, Ascot and Loreto Abbey Convent, Dalkey. She entered the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art in 1903, a decision which, given her background , was probably opposed by her family, but she was independent-minded, a characteristic which became particularly pronounced when later she earned the nick-name ''the little rebel'', because of her sympathies with those involved in the 1916 Easter Rising. While at the Metropolitan School, she was at first attracted by the crafts of fine metalwork and enamelling. Under the guidance of Oswald Reeves she won top prizes for her metalwork in London at the National Competitions of 1908 and 1909. She also worked on painted china, carved wood, silver, costume design and stained glass, which were aspects of the strong arts and crafts revival in Ireland. However, her interest in painting was to be fired by the teaching in Dublin of Sir William Orpen, only two years her senior, who encouraged her and for whom she had a high regard. It was Orpen's style of tonal realism acquired at the Slade School of Art, which he passed on to her. In 1910 she was admitted to the RHA Life School. She exhibited for the first time at the RHA in 1911 with Science and Power (Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery), sometime after which she left to paint in Paris and Bruges. She was back in Dublin in 1916 and became known as the ''Artist of the Rising''. She went openly into the most dangerous centres in Dublin to capture in her paintings the spirit and personalities of the Rising. She also carried messages between the leaders. During the First World War Kathleen Fox kept a studio in London where she met her husband Lieutenant Cyril Pym who was killed in action. There a daughter was born in 1918. Later she moved to Nice where she continued to paint and exhibited in France, London and Dublin. In 1921 her work was shown at the New English Art Club, the National Portrait Society, the Royal Academy and the Royal Hibernian Academy. She returned to Dublin in the early twenties and later inherited the family home in Milltown, Dublin where she painted many interior views. For the next twenty years she worked as a highly successful portrait painter in Ireland and England but made not further submissions to the RHA until 1944. In her later paintings there is a significant and enduring transformation in terms of subject matter. Gone is the spirited work of some twenty years earlier, to be replaced by highly competent flower-studies which she exhibited throughout the 1940s and 50s and for which today, perhaps unfairly, she is best known. She died in 1963. The artist painted this view of the Four Courts shortly after its sacking in 1922 by the artillery fire of the Pro-Treaty forces during the War of Independence. Kathleen Fox must have found it bitterly ironic that the men and women who fought on the side of Pearse and his companions and whom she had portrayed six years earlier had now divided into two warring factions. Interestingly, there exists another, larger ''View of the Four Courts'', (UCD Newman House), undated, but painted by the artist prior to the the destruction of the building. Whereas that picture is tight and academic with a strong emphasis on tonality, this view, depicted after a heavy shower of rain, is painted in a spontaneous, ''impressionistic'' manner full of moist atmosphere.

Full page illustration p209; ''One Hundred Years of Irish Art - A Millennium Presentation'' by Eamonn Mallie p222 Full page Illustration p223; ''Ireland: Her People and Landscape'' Exhibition Catalogue, full page illustration p21 Kathleen Fox was brought up in Anglo-Irish family on the outskirts of Dublin and studied at the Metropolitan School of Art, attracting the attention of William Orpen, whose assistant she eventually became. She first exhibited with the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1911 before leaving to paint in Paris and Bruges, returning to Dublin in 1916. She moved to Nice at the end of the 1910's but continued to exhibit in London and Dublin as well as France, before returning to Dublin again in the mid 1920's. She was a highly successful portraitist in Ireland and England and well regarded for her flower studies of the 1940's and 50's. A more academic approach to realism was brought to Irish art through William Orpen's teaching at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art from 1902-14. His former studio assistant, Kathleen Fox (1880-1963) painted Ruins of the Four Courts, (1922) which depicts the familiar building from an established viewpoint across the Liffey. What is striking about the work is that within the tranquil scene the dome of Gandon's great building is missing and next to it are the shells of buildings destroyed in the War of Independence. Fox's work belongs to an important strand of early 20th century realist art, one which sought to record the major events of Irish history. This paintings does so in a subtle but compelling manner.
