Ethel Warwick
Ethel Warwick, The Village Pump
Ethel Herrick Warwick was born in 1885, in New York City. In 1901, she moved to Philadelphia where she eventually enrolled at the Moore Institute of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. During this time, she studied with Fred Wagner, Hugh Breckenridge, Henry B. Snell, Earl Horter, and E. O'Hara.Mrs. Warwick painted continually throughout her life. Landscapes, still lifes, interiors, and portraits fill her oeuvre. She did many "post mortems," a very difficult facet of the portrait field. When she worked she usually did not do any preliminary sketches or studies. Instead she simply began with a few charcoal gestures on her canvas, and leapt into painting with lively color and value sense, fleshing out details with her brushes and paint.Her house in Germantown was often the meeting place of many artist friends - Robert Riggs, Earl Horter, N.C. Wyeth, Arthur E. Bye, Henry Pitz, among others, were known to visit and participate in lively discussions. She also counted among her friends many respected women painters of the time, such as Fern Coppedge, Katherine Farrell, and Elizabeth Washington. The ladies often painted together.
