Adelaide Fogg was educated at the Chicago Art Institute during the great depression when most women stayed in the home.

Using extraordinary colours, textures and mediums, the artist came up with an irresistible combination of childhood fantasy and sardonic comments. Her pictures both sparkle and startle with their unorthodox colour combinations and compositional trickery.

She had a school for teaching children art, and always said that the children greatly inspired her work.

Her work has been described by art critics in America as “stream of consciousness”.

She exhibited at the Pasadena Art Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Riverside Museum in New York a.o. Her work is represented in prominent collections throughout the USA.

    Adelaide was a close friend of our family in Venice, California, and actually a neighbor of my parents toward the end of her life. I have a couple of her pictures in my home; these pictures were kind and generous gifts from Addie. She was clearly brilliant — people who know much more about this than I do definitely think so. But what I remember is a dear sweet person.
