Sample text

He was always somewhat prickly in demeanor and was more easy to admire than to like. Cox had mixed feelings about returning home. He had been born in Warren, Ohio, in 1856, lived in Columbus as a child while his father was governor, and spent his adolescence in Cincinnati. Ohio was developing but was hardly on the edge of cultural innovation. Five years in Paris had made Cox a modern in both artistic approaches and in sensibilities. He was hardly radical, but at that point liked a personally interpreted realism that reflected and added to traditional methods and ideas.

He was working at illustration in New York while trying to attract attention in exhibitions. He knew only too well how hard it was to get started in the art world and offered to help. At the end of September, Cox accepted. 2 New York was threatening in its rush and impersonality, but Cox had coped with Paris and other European cities and understood urban ways. He lived briefly in a room in lower Manhattan, then moved to new studio space at 145 West Fifty-fifth Street in proximity to the city's cultural centers.
