Hilda Belcher

HILDA BELCHER (USA, 1881–1963)

Hilda Belcher was an American artist known for her paintings, watercolors, portraits and illustrations depicting individuals and landscapes, both in formal portraiture and in casual scenes of children and daily life. Born in Pittsford, Vermont, in 1881, Belcher was the oldest child of Martha Wood Belcher, an artist, and Stephen Paterson Belcher, a manufacturer of stained glass. When she was a teenager, the family relocated to Newark, New Jersey, but retained their home in Vermont. Belcher graduated from Newark High School in 1900. She later moved to New York City, where she attended the New York School of Art. Belcher studied with William Merritt Chase, Kenneth Hayes Miller, George Bellows and Robert Henri. She also attended the Art Students League of New York, where she later taught from 1910–12 and again from 1918–21. Belcher was the second woman to be accepted into the National Academy of Design. In 1935, Anne Miller Downes, a reviewer for The New York Times, called Belcher one of the most distinguished women artists in America.
