Although John Joseph Enneking was born in Ohio, he is most associated with New York and New England, where he painted evocative landscapes that combined elements of many different styles, including the Barbizon School, Hudson River School, Impressionism, and Tonalism. After serving in the army during the Civil War, Enneking came to Boston and began his studies in art before moving abroad in 1874. In France he worked with Barbizon and Impressionist masters, including Claude Monet. He returned to Boston in 1876, where he enjoyed a successful career and was best known for his plein-air woodland views.
