Information on Earle Horter is not plentiful. He was an illustrator and an etcher who concentrated on urban scenes. He was a member of the Society of Illustrators. Exhibition listings begin with the famous Pan-American Exposition of 1915 in San Francisco and continue up until his death at such places as Chicago, Philadelphia, New York and at the Corcoran Gallery biennials from 1935 to 1939.

He is better known in the art world today for the exciting collection of modern art that he amassed during his lifetime. A large portion of it was dispersed during his lifetime to meet financial needs but was reassembled at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1999.
