Although Lilla Cabot came from a privileged Boston family, she did not receive any formal art training, until she was 36. In 1874, she married Thomas Sargeant Perry, a professor of 18th-century English literature, & they had 3 daughters. The young family traveled to Paris from 1887 to 1889, where Lilla studied painting at the Académie Colarossi & the Académie Julian. While in Europe, she also trained in Munich & copied old-master paintings in Italy, England, & Spain.

When she was 41 years old, Perry saw her first impressionist painting in a Paris gallery. Perry sought out the artist, Monet, & became his close friend. For 9 summers the Perrys rented a house at Giverny, near Monet's; and he often advised Perry on her art.

Between 1898 & 1901, the family resided in Japan, where Thomas Perry taught & Lilla studied some of the sources of impressionism - Japanese fabrics & prints. There she produced some 80 paintings; before returning home to paint in Boston during the academic year & on a New Hampshire farm during the summers. Perry exhibited her work at the Paris Salon & the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. She won medals for her paintings at important exhibitions in Boston, St. Louis, & San Francisco.
