Vita : “Born in Hoboken, New Jersey, Eleanor Greatorex was a specialist in floral paintings and figure works, instructed by her mother, Eliza, and her sister, Kathleen. She also studied at the National Academy of Design, 1869-1870, and in Paris with Carolus Duran and Jean-Jacques Henner in 1879. – In 1881, while sketching with her family in Algiers, she became ill, and they all returned to New York, although after her recovery, she and her sister traveled widely. In New York City, she joined her mother and sister in opening a studio and teaching art classes, and with her sister, she painted murals for the Ladies Reception Room in the Dakota Apartments in New York City. In 1886, she returned to Paris and exhibited in several Salon exhibitions. She also lived and taught at the family home in Cragsmoor, New York, and was a part of the Art Colony there. – She was a member of the American Watercolor Society. Exhibition venues included the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition of 1878, National Academy of Design, 1876-1885, Brooklyn Art Association in the 1870s and 1880s, Paris Salon in 1880 and 1888-1890, Boston Art Club 1884-1891, Art Institute of Chicago 1888-1889, and the Pennsylvania Academy in 1888. She was also an active exhibiter with the Women Etchers of America, but none of her etchings have been located” (AskArt)
