Ruby Emery Albrightkarlene
I have an oil on canvas by Ruby Emery Albright. It seems to be of the courtyard of the Santa Barbara Mission. The canvas appears to be on the original carved wooden frame with a cross and vines at the top of the frame. It has a nun and two birds feeding in the picture. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have an oil painting by Ruby Emory Albright. It is of the courtyard of the Santa Barbara Mission. Approx: 36"x48". Online I have located a much smaller (16"x20")painting in northern California, painted by Ruby Albright. This painting is almost identical to the one I have...but is missing a priest and birds...also a few minor layout differences. (could the smaller painting be a study for the one I have? I have not been able to fine any additional information on this artist...any help would be greatly appreciated. Is she the daughter of Adam Emory Albright? Thanks in advance.

I have an oil on canvas of 'San Juan Capistrano' that is signed 'Emery Albright' dated '1929'. Measures 38" x 24". Canvas appears to be on original wooden frame. I have noted that various websites regarding Mr. Albright spell his name two different ways 'Emery' and 'Emory'. My question is 'how did Mr. Albright sign his name on his paintings?' I would love to know if the painting I have is an actual work of art by Mr. Albright. Advice?

I just purchased a signed copy of Albright's For Art's Sake. Seems like an interesting man. Does anyone know how many copies of this book were made. Thanks.

Mr. Albright did a painting of myself and a cousin. When he was in Corea, ME. We are standing on a large rock on the shore of Corea Harbor. Couldn't find it in his paintings. Would like to know anything about it or would just like to see it. thanks to anyone that can help me.

I bought an oil painting directly from Mr Albright in abt. 1954 (He was 92 yrs. old). He was an absolute delight. He and I walked through his studio, if I remember correctly, in an old church across from his home. The painting I purchased is 30X24 and is in a frame which Mr. Albright said that he had made himself. The terms of the sale were most interesting in that I was to pay him $24.00 a month until either he or I died. He said it was a pretty good deal for me because of his age. He also gave me a book he had written titled "For Art's Sake" which, unfortunately I loaned to someone and never got it back. He said that he sold his work on those terms because of taxes.
Biographical SketchDr. Jeffrey Owens
I have a 1910-11 Who's Who in America which contains information about Adam Emory Albright. Born on 15 August, 1862, in Monroe, WI, to Zachariah and Catherine (Kepler) Albright, he went to the Art Institute of Chicago at age 19, from 1881-83. From 1883-86, Adam attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, and studied in Munich and Paris in 1887-88. On Christmas Eve, 1888, he married Clara Amelia Wilson of St. Louis. Known for his paintings of country children, Adam participated at many exhibitions: Chicago (1893), NYC, Phila., Boston, Washington, Carnegie Institute (Pittsburgh), Buffalo, St. Louis, etc. He won the Grower Prize of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1907 and the Martin B. Cahn prize in 1908. In 1909, he served as delegate for the Chicago Society of Artists and the Society of Western Artists at the 1st National Art Convention in Washington, D.C. Adam was in the Society of Western Artists, the Fellowship of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Chicago Society of Artists (director and ex-vice-pres.), the Chicago Water Color Club (dir. and ex. v-p), the Chicago Academy of Design, and the American Federation of Arts. (Quite a joiner!) His home in 1910 was in Edison Park, Illinois.
