Tyler, Alice Kellogg(1866-1900)
One of the first students at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Kellogg Tyler enjoyed a long and well considered career as an artist as well as a teacher. The fifth of six girls, Kellogg adopted the metaphysical concerns of her father who was a practicing holistic physician. She believed that there was an inextricable link between the body and soul, her portraits are quite expository of this philosophy in their internal luminescence. Upon attending school in Paris, Kellogg Tyler found that the American Puritanism she had come to know as her own would be broken by the free thinking of the French. Kellogg Tyler’s work has been shown in Salon exhibitions in Paris as well as Universelle of 1889, and the Chicago World’s Fair. Her work is displayed in Chicago’s Hull House as well as the Art Institute of Chicago.
