Lucille HowardSteven W
My step-mother was a student of Lucille Howard when she was a teacher at Moore Art School in Philadelphia, Pa. She bought two of Lucille's paintings at a art auction in Morrestown, NJ in the early 1970"s. She lived in this town when she got married late in life as her husband had a substaincal house there. The Morrestown Libary has some information about her and the 'Philadelphia Ten'. I have these paintings now and the are very beautiful.

I own several paintings by a 'Lucille Howard' who was a family friend of my grandmother. I knew her as Aunt Lucille. I've been told she studied in Europe in the late 1920's. Perhaps I have the wrong person but I have a lovely large oil on board of Gondolas in Venice, her favorite city. I also have a mural she painted for my grandmother of a forest scene, huge trees, mountains coming down to a lake (she used a turquoise tint often and a beautiful blue) and a lake, done with a palette knife. I have a watercolor of a mountain she and my mother and family climbed in Italy done is peaches, yellows, blue and green. Her paintings that I have are signed Lucille Howard, not Edith. Cold this be the same woman? I've had numerous dealers comment on their beauty. My family was from South Orange, NJ and Darien Conn. I know my grandmother was active in the volunteer group that worked on the Whitney Museum when she lived in Hoboken as a young woman. I'd assume that is where they met. I'd like information to see if indeed they are the same woman. The signature is a lovely forward slanting script in ochre on the left hand bottom of the paintings and has a slash under the Howard.
