Alice Standish Buell was an active printmaker from the 1920’s into the late 1950’s. She was born in 1892 in Oak Park, Illinois and received her early art education attending Oberlin College in Ohio although she is not listed in the online roster of Oberlin alumnae. She also studied at the Art Students’ League in New York and, privately, from Martin Lewis, a prolific Australian born printmaker who worked in New York.

Buell alternated between her studios in Woodstock, Vermont and Sanibel, Florida. Her rural subject matter was often taken from those places. As a six –year member of the board of directors of the Art Students League and as secretary of the Pen and Brush in the late 1950’s one could surmise she also spent considerable time in New York.

Her etchings were exhibited at the Art institute of Chicago and at the Chicago Century of Progress expositions in both 1933 and 1934. The New York World’s Fair in 1939 was also a venue for her work. Her achievement in etching was especially recognized by the Philadelphia Printmakers Club in 1939 and, in 1947, she won first prize for graphic art from the National Association of Women Artists. Her etchings are in the collection of the Library of Congress, the Art Students’ League, and the National Museum for Women in the Arts.
