Robert C. Vose (1873-1964), a young art dealer during Enneking’s later years, wrote about his style:
He loved Autumn with her glorious auburn tresses, and he loved Twilight, from her flaming sunsets, to her tenderest afterglows, for his keen senses thrilled with love of color… equally delightful are his groups of Trout Brooks, Pastorals in Blossom Time, and Mountain Views. Last, chronologically, and dearest to the artist’s own heart, are the “Moods,” a lovely series of impressions of nature, subtle, subjective, tonal harmonies, which will take high rank in American Art.
