Biography from Dixon-Hall Fine Art:
A descendent of Abigail and John Adams, Edith Lucile Howard was born in Bellow Falls, Vermont and attended the Philadelphia School of Design for Women (Moore College of Art) from 1904 to 1908 and won two postgraduate fellowships for European study.  Among her teachers were Elliott Daingerfield and Henry B. Snell. During her lifetime, Howard made over 30 trips abroad where she painted landscapes extensively.

One of the most significant members of the Philadelphia Ten Women Painters from 1917-45, Howard was also a member of the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors, the Plastic Club of Philadelphia (1910-37), the New York Water Color Club, the Wilmington (DE) Society of Fine Arts, the Philadelphia Art Alliance and others. She taught at the School of Design for Women, Grand Central Art Galleries and School of Art in New York and lectured on art and art history over the radio and in person. She exhibited extensively with solo showings in Cleveland, OH, Palm Beach, FL, Providence, RI, Scranton and Southampton, PA, and Washington, DC.
