Josephine Paddock (April 18, 1885 – 1964) was an American painter born in New York City. She earned a B.A. degree at Barnard College and studied at the Art Students League with Robert Henri, Kenyon Cox, William Merritt Chase, and John Alexander.
Her sister Ethel Louise Paddock was born two years later. She also studied with Henri and would also become a painter and a member of the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors. Both sisters would go on to exhibit at Henri's Exhibition of Independent Artists in 1910, a show that in some ways was a prototype for the Armory Show three years later.
Armory Show of 1913
Paddock was one of the artists who exhibited at this landmark show. The show included three of her watercolors. These were: Swans on the grass ($50), Swan study-peace ($50), and Swan study-aspiration ($50).
Her work was among forty-eight 19th and 20th Century paintings in the collection of Seymour R. Thaler and Mildred Thaler Cohen which was bequeathed to the Mattatuck Museum, Waterbury, Connecticut, in 2000.
Paddock was a member of the American Watercolor Society, Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, New Haven Paint & Clay Club, Grand Central Art Gallery, NYC, North Shore Art Association, Gloucester, MA, American Artist Professional League.
