Portrait and landscape painter, etcher, and illustrator, born in Cincinnati (Hamilton), March 4, 1857.  A son of Charles B. Foote, a banker, he attended the Cincinnati School of Design and in 1880 joined with Henry Farny and Ferdinand Mersmannn in starting a private art school in Farny's studio, where the course of instruction was to be "exclusivelylimited to studies from the living model."  From 1884 to at least 1896, Foote studied and worked in France and Italy, and in August 1886 he was married in Scotland to Margaret Ingram, a fellow artist.  They were back in Cincinnati in 1890 and 1891.
