Edith Lucile Howard : Beach Scene
Edith Lucile Howard (Beach Scene)

[larger image

Artist: Edith Lucile Howard
Title: Beach Scene
Media: Pastel on paper 10 1/4 × 14 3/8 inches
Description: Howard can best be described as an Impressionist landscape and seascape painter. Because of her constant travel regimen she found it expedient to paint numerous small plein air studies, such as Beach Scene, that often served as the basis for larger oil paintings completed in her Carnegie Hall studio. The New York Evening Post described her standard working procedure: [She] takes her canvas with her to the place she intends to paint and lays out the main outlines of the scene on the spot. Then later, she finishes the work. . . Frequently she paints an entire picture from memory alone, having trained her mind to retain impressions so vividly that the result is as accurate as if the work had been done at the scene itself.1
