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. However, 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, and that interest has prompted this book. It is a look at a young woman growing up in Victorian times and the limitations those times set before her. Maud went beyond the limitations to become an early suffragette; she maintained her art career even after marriage and a family. Many of her images grace the pages of this biography and bring her art to life.
