    • Adam Emory Albright was one of the most successful painters working in Chicago at the beginning of the twentieth century. The charm and sentimental nature of his stunning depictions of barefoot country children struck a chord with Midwestern audiences and secured his artistic reputation.

      Albright’s charming visions of childhood adventures encapsulates the poetry of the nineteenth-century writers John Whitcombe Riley and John Greenleaf Whittier. Albright’s popularity is largely due to the feeling of nostalgia evoked by these paintings, and the feeling of innocence and idealized childhood pleasure they recall.

      Widely collected by the finest institutions in America during his lifetime, including the Art Institute of Chicago, the St. Louis Art Museum, and the Toledo Museum of Art, today Albright’s delicately painted visions of carefree children enjoying the delights of nature remain as celebrated today for their timeless elegance and the innocent simplicity of their subject.
