Biography: Katherine Levin Farrell was known for her marine, landscape, and genre paintings, as well as her etchings. Born in Philadelphia, the artist married Theodore Farrell in the 1890s and her subsequent signature appears as Levin, Farrell, or Levin-Farrell. At various times, she was a student of Augustus Buhler, Emil Bisttram, Thomas Eakins, Stephen Ferris, Peter Moran, and John Twachtman. Her work was exhibited extensively from the 1880s onward, including in 1893 in Chicago at the Women's Building of the World's Columbian Exposition, in Philadelphia at the School of Design for Women, the Academy of Fine Art and with The Society of Artists, as well as the New the National Academy of Design, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Brooklyn Art Association, and others. In 1938, a solo exhibition of her work was put on by the Philadelphia Art Alliance. Farrell was a founding member of the Plastic Club, and won a number of awards during her lifetime. Today, her work resides in many collections, including that of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, where she studied as a fellow.
