Katharine Dunn Pagon


Hailing from Chestnut Hill, PA, Pagon trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from 1910-1918. A trained portrait painter, Pagon was a member of the ‘45 Group on Nantucket and part of the artist contingent from the Baltimore/Washington area that included Sarah Baker, Charlotte Stuart Kimball, and Elinor Gibson Graham. She was an early member of the Artists Association and showed in the early Sidewalk Art Shows, as in 1934.

She became close friends with her teacher Hugh Breckenridge and corresponded with he and his family over many years.
