John Joseph Enneking’s success as an artist was foretold early-on when Williams and Everett mounted his first solo exhibition in 1878, sold every work, and netted the artist $5,000. He then began to exhibit widely at prominent venues throughout the United States, including the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Corcoran Gallery, the Boston Art Club, Vose Galleries, and the Panama-Pacific Exposition of 1915, where he won the prestigious gold medal. He was included in the Paris Exposition of 1900, and in a group show in 1883 with Childe Hassam (1859-1935), Willard Metcalf (1858-1925) and Theodore Robinson (1852-1896).
