Madeline Von Foerster, 1973 | Surrealist painter


Madeline von Foerster was born in San Francisco to german-austrian parents. Now lives and works in Germany.
Studied illustration at the Californian College of Arts in San Francisco. After completing her studies, she relocated to New York city at the suggestion of one of her teachers and resides there to this day.
To create her unique paintings, Madeline von Foerster uses a five century-old mixed technique of oil and egg tempera, developed by the Flemish Renaissance Masters.


Although linked stylistically to the past, her paintings are urgently relevant to the Anthropocene, exploring the human relationship to nature with such themes as deforestation, wildlife trafficking, and human-caused extinction.
Von Foerster's artworks are in collections around the world and have been featured in numerous publications, including "100 Painters of Tomorrow" (Thames and Hudson, 2014), and an eight-page feature in Germany's "Art" Magazine.
She was also the subject of a television portrait on ARTE's "Metropolis", broadcast in Germany and France.
