HELEN LUNDEBERG was born in Chicago, IL in 1908. Lundeberg studied painting at the Stickney Memorial School of Art in Pasadena, CA, where she met then-professor, fellow painter, and future husband, Lorser Feitelson. She first exhibited at Fine Arts Gallery in 1931 and had her first solo exhibition at Stanley Rose Gallery in Los Angeles in 1933.
Working closely with Feitelson, Lundeberg is often credited with the development Post-Surrealism, or Subjective Classicism. Her painting style shifted as her career went on, and she later became an active participant in the West Coast “hard-edge” abstractionist movement.
Lundeberg’s work is included in numerous public collections, including the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, CA; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; San Francisco Museum of Art, San Francisco, CA; Brooklyn Museum, New York, NY; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA; Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at Utah State University, Logan, UT; and National Museum of American Art, Washington, D.C.
Helen Lundeberg died in Los Angeles, CA in 1999.
