Biography   H. Willard Ortlip


H. Willard Ortlip began art studies in 1902 at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia under the tutelage of William Merritt Chase, Sargeant Kendall, Hugh Breckenridge and Henry McCarter ( his uncle). He was awarded two Cresson scholarships, which enabled him to study abroad. In 1910, he married art student Aimee Eschner, and together they set up a studio in Philadelphia's Independence Square. Willard earned a reputation as a society portrait painter. In addition, he painted for "Collier's" magazine. In his New York City studio, he furthered his free-lance work with advertising.

In 1947, in retirement, Willard and Aimee began teaching at Houghton College, contributing to the building of an art department.
