McENTEE, Jervis, artist, born in Rondout, New York, 14 July, 1828. He studied in the winter of 1850-'1 with Frederic E. Church in New York, but later engaged in business in Rondout. This he relinquished after three years, and, opening a studio in New York, devoted himself thenceforth wholly to art. He first exhibited at the Academy of design in 1853, and was elected an associate in 1860, and academician one year later. In 1869 he visited Europe, sketching" in Italy and Switzerland, and studying in the principal galleries on the continent. Mr. McEntee usually delineates Nature in her more sombre aspects, and there is in his paintings a latent sentiment not often found among landscape-painters. He is especially successful in autumnal scenes. His more important works are "The Melancholy Days have come " (1860); "Indian Summer" (1861); "Late Autumn" (1863) ; "October Snow" (1870) ; "Sea from Shore" (1873); "Cape Ann" (1874) ; "A Song of Summer" (1876), "Winter in the Mountains" (1878) : "Clouds " (1879) ; " The Edge of a Wood" (1880); "Kaatskill River" (1881); " Autumn Memory" (1883); "Shadows of Autumn" and "The Kaatskills in Winter" (1884) ; "Christmas Eve" (1885) ; and "Shadows of Autumn" (1886).
