Enjoy our Counted Cross Stitch and Counted Needlepoint Charts Patterns inspired by the works of Maud Humphrey Bogart.
Maud Humphrey was born in 1868 in Rochester, New York to John Perkins Humphrey and Frances V. Dewey Churchill. The pride of her prominent family origins is apparent with the use of her maiden name in the signature on all her art. She started drawing at a young age. Maud Humphrey was one of the most popular illustrators in America at the turn of the century. Unfortunately, through the years, Maud's impact on American illustration was lost, until it seemed her only claim to fame was as the mother of Hollywood legend Humphrey Bogart. Maud's role on the American art scene was as remarkable as any role her son ever played on stage or screen. Today, there is a resurgence of interest in Maud Humphrey's work.
