CLARK Kate Freeman (1875-1922) Nationality : American
Kate Freeman Clark, born in Holly Springs, Mississippi, was a contemporary of Anne Golthwaite. She managed to study very successfully in New York with Robert Henri and William Merritt Chase, and was on her way to achieving a notable career. But on the advice of her mother, who had gone to New York with her, she concealed her sex by signing her paintings "Freeman Clark." She never sold a work, even though she was given several "one-man" shows.
