Georgiana Howland was born in Astoria, New York to a prominent American family. She was a descendant of John Howland, a Puritan who traveled from England on the Mayflower. Her parents were Mary Woolsey and Robert Shaw Howland.[1] Her father was a clergyman who served as an assistant minister at St. Luke’s Church and later as rector of the Church of the Holy Apostles.[2] Following the Civil War, Rev. Howland led the first services of the Church of the Heavenly Rest at the Rutgers Female Institute on 42nd Street.[3]

Howland studied under the tutelage of William Merritt Chase at the New York School of Art and at the Shinnecock Hills School of Art located in Southampton, Long Island.[4] In 1894, Howland’s painting entitled A Flowery Path was included as an illustration for a biographical sketch of Chase published in The Quarterly Illustrator.[5]
