Fritz Vogt Drawings: A Sense of Place

Between 1890 and 1900 itinerant folk artist Fritz G. Vogt roamed the turnpikes and dirt roads of five New York Counties west of Albany [Montgomery, Schoharie, Otsego, Fulton, and Herkimer]. By the time of his death on January 1, 1900, Vogt had created more than 200 distinctive architectural portraits featuring farms, homes, and businesses. Suggesting a draftsman’s training, Vogt’s linear drawings include an extraordinary amount of detail while imbuing the subject with a romanticized sense of optimism and pride of place…The result is a window into the artist’s personal perspective and his patron’s motivations, as well as a striking representation of the region’s architecture, commerce, and social history. Drawn Home: Fritz Vogt’s Rural America, 2002 Organized by the Arkell Museum, Fritz Vogt Drawings: A Sense of Place, includes work from the collections of the Arkell Museum, Fenimore Art Museum, The Farmers’ Museum, and a private collector.
