Felicie Waldo Howell, born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1897, was a painter of oil and watercolor coastal landscapes, shore scenes, Impressionist figures in nature, interiors, and marine scenes. Howell's early works were often interiors, and later she turned to landscape, shore scenes, and marine subjects. She was also a teacher of painting at the New York School of Fine and Applied Art. By 1917, Howell had moved to Washington D.C., where she studied at the Corcoran School of Art with E.C. Messer. Then she enrolled at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women in Pennsylvania and with Henry Snell. In 1922, she became an Associate of the National Academy of Design in New York City, and in 1945, full Academician. Her artwork is housed in the National Gallery, Smithsonian Institution and Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and in New York City at the National Arts Club and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
