Swope (1868-1941) was born in Louisville and studied at the National Academy of Design, New York, with James Montgomery Flagg and Edgar Ward. Swope and her husband, Charlton Armstrong Swope, a travel-freight agent for the Louisville & Nashville Railroad, were headquartered and lived primarily in New York, though she kept strong associations with Louisville. She exhibited regularly at the Southern Art League and Louisville Art League during the 1890s and early 1900s, and eventually retired back to Louisville at the end of her career.
