Esther Rolick was born in Rochester, and most likely studied art at Franklin High School with Emil Maurer and at the Memorial Art Gallery with William Ehrich, based on the credit line for this painting. In 1946, Rolick spent time at Yaddo, a retreat for artists in Saratoga Springs, where she met Truman Capote, who referred to her in his letters. In 1948, she took her first trip to Europe, perhaps supported by Hildegarde Watson, who provided financial backing for many local artists.
