Biography

Verena Ruegg was known for painting, etching, creating lithographs, and making prints. She also sketched ballet performances of dance companies touring Los Angeles. Ruegg attended the Chouinard Art Institute and the Otis Art Institute. In addition to attending and sketching many ballet performances, Ruegg also visited dance classes. She was also a member of the California Art Club association.

In 1939, a fire that started on the roof of Ruegg’s home destroyed the house, but her husband, Fred Robinson, an actor’s agent, saved many of her paintings. Ruegg’s husband was killed by a car the following year while walking the family dog, an event that captured the attention of local media.
