Among the artist members of the Century Jervis McEntee held a high position, and was widely known and appreciated. There was a tender and melancholy sentiment in his work which made it exceedingly popular with the public, and his genial and unassuming nature endeared him to a host of friends which was not limited by the walls of the Century.
