(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania / 1882 - 1960)
A long-time resident of Germantown, Katherine Hood McCormick was born in Philadelphia in 1882 and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art from 1903 - 1911. She studied with, among others, Henry McCarter and Fred Wagner. McCormick is best known for her watercolors and woodprints, but she worked in pastels and oils as well. McCormick participated only in the inaugural exhibition of the Philadelphia Ten in 1917, and that year she displayed 25 land and seascape paintings. Later, she exhibited at the National Academy of Design in New York, and annually until the 1950s at the Fellowship exhibitions at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
