This biography from the Archives of AskART:
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.

Foss exhibited at the Paris Salon beginning in 1887, and throughout the 1890s in both Paris and New York City. Her painting, "The Flower Maker," was exhibited in 1892 in the Paris Salon, in 1893 in the World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago, Illinois, and in 1899 at the Royal Academy, London, England.

Foss taught painting from 1892 to 1895 at what would become Goucher College, then the Women's College of Baltimore, Maryland. By 1905, Foss had a home in Stamford, Connecticut and a studio in New York City. She moved to Darien, Connecticut in 1909. She was a member of the Seven Art League there.
