Biography Harriet Foss
Harriet Campbell Foss, born in Middletown, Connecticut in 1860, signed her paintings "H. Campbell Foss" to avoid any prejudice against women artists. A portrait, genre and still-life painter, Foss was the daughter of a Methodist minister who taught at Wesleyan University in Middletown.
After attending Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts in 1883-1884, she transferred to the Women's School of Design at Cooper Union in New York City when she decided to study art. In another venue there she also studied with J. Alden Weir. She went to Paris for five years in the late 1880s, where she studied with Alfred Stevens, and at the Academie Julian with William Bouguereau, and the Academie Colarossi with Gustave Courtois.
