"b. Rondout, N.Y., 1828. Pupil of F.E. Church, N.A. Elected member of the National Academy, 1861. Member of the American Art Union. " Mr. McEntee's pictures are all characterized by great sincerity and decided poetic feeling. They evince a subdued yet intense enjoyment of those phases of nature that are tinctured with melancholy, and which are therefore none the less beautiful. The artist's style is expressive and sensitive, and, within the scope of his stronger sympathies, mature and confident. - Prof. Weir. " It would be almost impossible to paint a better expression of a late october day. The brown landscape and trees all but leafless, under the dull leaden colored sky with the bright gleam of white light along the horizon, are elements with which one becomes familiar in this country." [P. 50.]
