Priscilla Ordway was a well-known Boston artist, a contemporary of Marjorie Van Wickle Lyon. They met in Boston when Marjorie joined the Copley Society and began taking private art lessons with Priscilla at her studio in Newton. A friendship began which would last many years. Priscilla became a regular guest at Blithewold where she loved to paint in the gardens, and many of her paintings remain in the Collection.
