Born in Winnipeg, Ontario, Canada, in 1893, Emile Walters moved to the United States in 1898. He studied at Chicago's Art Institute, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Tiffany Foundation. Exhibited widely, he received prizes from the Art Institute and the National Academy of Design, as well as the Order of the Falcon from King Christian of Denmark.
Winter scenes are common in Emile Walter's oeuvre and reflect his affinity with Impressionism. A landscape painter, Walters particularly enjoyed the scenery of central Pennsylvania. He later specialized in views of Iceland (where he lived for a time), Greenland, and the Arctic regions. Walters is widely represented in museums throughout the world, including the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
Walters died in Poughkeepsic, N.Y. in 1977.
