This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Fritzie Abadi became noted for collage and assemblage---what she described as 'small environments'. One of her collages, America's First Hurrah, was two by three feet and was a "potpourri" of colonial history images including George Washington.

Abadi was born in 1915 in Aleppo, Syria, and then lived in Jerusalem. At age nine, she moved with her family to Brooklyn, New York, and then at age eighteen married and moved to Oklahoma City, where she gave birth to two daughters, Annette and Esther, and "forgot about art".

In 1945, she returned to Brooklyn and enrolled at the Art Students League, studying with Nahum Tschacbasov, her only teacher and remained in New York, establishing a studio there. 

Memberships and exhibitions venues included the National Association of Women Artists, American Society of Contemporary Artists, which she served as President, Brooklyn Society of Artists, Art Students League, and Hudson River Contemporary Artists.

She had many solo exhibitions and was part of group exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum, Whitney Annuals, Carnegie Institute and Library of Congress.

She died in May, 2001 in New York City.
