Henrietta Shore  (1880-1963)
 
Henrietta Shore was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1880 and studied at the Art Students League and the Heatherly Institute in London.  In 1913 Shore moved to Los Angeles where she helped found the Los Angeles Society of Modern Artists.  Shore returned to New York in 1921 and applied for U.S. citizenship.  While in New York her reputation as a leading woman modernist grew with her successes.  She was chosen to represent American women in Paris in 1924, and that same year traveled to Mexico where she was well received.  Shore moved to Carmel, California, in the late 1920ís, and was a close companion to photographer Edward Weston, and the two were mutually inspired by the natural elements found on the Monterey Peninsula.  In her later years, Henrietta Shore was increasingly reclusive.  Shore died in San Jose, California, in 1963.
