This information and a clip of the entire page was sent off list. 
I believe I have located her, under the name of her husband. Mrs Oliver Carter Macy. Articles in a few newspapers of 1923 contains a photo of her portrait. I have attached the best copy. 
The attached page I sent was from: The Palm Beach Post West Palm Beach Florida 09 Dec 1923 Sunday Page 25

 Subject: [PW] Article(s) about a Leo Katz portrait
A patron has asked if I can find an article about a portrait painted by Leo Katz of her husband's mother, Ann Jacobs Lenhart Macy. I was remiss in not asking the patron for the spelling of Ann (or Anne) and Lenhart, so I may not have those correct. Google provides no results.

The patron thought the article was in an issue of the New Yorker in 1921 or 1927. I searched the archive at newyorker.com and got no results.

I contacted the Leo Katz Foundation, who replied with an attached image they believed was the portrait, made in 1922, and thought there may have been articles in the 12/31/22 issue of the New York Tribune and another one in the March 23, 1922 issue of International Studio. I searched the Tribune at newspapers.com and International Studio at Hathi Trust, but again, no results (there was a brief mention of Mr. Katz and his portrait of "Miss Vanderlip" in the March, 1923 issue of International Studio).

I would welcome suggestions for further search strategies.

Thank you!
