About Madeline von

Madeline von Foerster was born to German-Austrian parents and raised in San Francisco. She uses historic iconography, as well as the meticulous painting techniques of the Old Masters, to tackle modern-day subjects, such as environmentalism.

Foerster is worried about where modern culture is headed, but she believes there is still time to make a new myth. And if something is worth saying, it is worth the time it takes to paint. The detail and luminosity of her paintings are intended for slow deliberation.

Her work has been exhibited in Germany and the United States.

I think she has put a lot of creative emotion into this piece!

I love her ideas,the skill,the look of her work, but I agree with another below there is too much 'reason' headwork here,no instinct/flow I can't 'feel' it.yet.Too conscious.

Her picture of the saartje bartman in the chest though had real emotion and instnct.She is a great painter.

I agree with Paulina M The faces are beautifully done! Thee proportion,the hands and the FEELING missed their mark.
