A well-known illustrator of childrens' books, Ida Waugh was born into a family of artists: her father Samuel Bell Waugh (1814–1885) was a highly regarded portrait and genre painter. Her mother Mary Eliza Young Waugh was a miniature painter; and her brother was the illustrator and painter of seascapes Frederick Judd Waugh (1861–1940). Ida Waugh studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and was later a member of the first life class for women taught there by Emily Sartain (1841–1927) and Catherine Drinker (1841–1922) in 1869. She then studied in Paris at the Académie Julian, the Académie Delecluse, and with Jules-Joseph Lefebvre and Benjamin Constant.
