Janet Lippincott (1918-2007) was born in New York City where her interest in art was cultivated through trips to the museums as a child. Her mother enrolled her in a drawing class at the Artist Student’s League at the age of fifteen and she continued her studies there after high school. Her early exposure to contemporary art movements influenced her work from the beginning and when she moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1957 her ideas on modernist painting shook up the local art scene there.
