I can't trace any details of Kate's life. The catalogue just says 19th Century.

Kate Newenham Gray (born Katherine Louisa Wesley Newenham 1840) was the daughter of Frederick Newenham (1807-1859) and the wife of Curwen Gray (b. 1836), both also artists. Her mother, Emma Frances Wesley, was a musician and the daughter of Samuel Wesley (1766-1837). She has a brief entry in "The Dictionary of Victorian Painters" by Christopher Wood 1995 (pub by the Antique Collector's Club)
