Louise Cox moved to New York City from San Francisco in 1881 to study at the National Academy of Design. Two years later she entered the Art Students League as one of the youngest in her class. Her teachers included the painters Thomas Wilmer Dewing and Kenyon Cox, who became her husband in 1892 and with whom she had three children. Louise Cox designed stained glass but made her reputation from portraits of children, which won her several medals.
