Jervis McEntee was born in the Hudson River Valley, in Rondout, New York, in 1828. At the age of twenty-two, McEntee studied for a year with Hudson River School master, Frederic E. Church (1826-1900), in New York City. He then worked briefly in the flour and feed business before deciding, in 1855, to devote himself entirely to painting. He took up a studio at the legendary Tenth Street Studio Building, where artists such as Winslow Homer (1836-1910), Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902), and Church himself worked and exhibited. In 1858, McEntee had an additional studio built next to his father's home in Rondout, where the artist spent many summers painting the nearby Catskill Mountains. He was elected an associate member of the National Academy in 1860 and became a full member the following year.
