Maud Humphrey is a beautiful American artist and illustrator. She was born in the rich family in Rochester, New York.
She was very proud of her wealthy family because she always signed her works with her family name.
From the age of 12 she started learning the drawing in the most famous artists’ school.
After school she became an advertising illustrator and later- the head artist in the women’s journal.
One of the main themes in her oeuvre was the children’s world.
The artist depicted different scenes from the children’s life, but sometimes it just showed what happened in the adult’s world.
Her pictures are bright and juicy and they are full with the life joy.
She often drew her small son – a future star of Hollywood – Humphrey Bogart and even used his portrait in the baby food advert and earned a great sum of money.
But she never was a lovable, kind mother.
She didn’t want to share her love with something but drawing.
