(1885 - 1960)
A member of the Philadelphia Ten for the duration of its existence, Lucile Howard led a remarkably full life personally and professionally. Born in Vermont, Howard came to Wilmington, Delaware with her family in her teens and enrolled in the Philadelphia School of Design for Women, where she studied under Henry Snell and Elliot Daingerfield. She traveled the United States and abroad regularly, reportedly crossing the Atlantic thirty times over her lifetime. She was particularly fond of Ireland and it became the subject of many of her landscapes. She won numerous awards during her career, taught painting and fashion design and volunteered for numerous arts-related organizations. In 1931 she and her fellow Philadelphia Ten member M. Elizabeth Price worked together to design murals for the American Woman's Association clubhouse in New York. She held her last exhibition in 1959, only nine months before her death in 1960.
