This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted in July of 2006 by Judy Ramazzini:

Louise Lemp( Pabst) was born June 12, 1909 in St. Louis, Missouri, and died May 3, 1977 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Louise Lemp, daughter of a St. Louis brewing family, lived in Paris with her mother and father, who had retired early, from about 1927 until 1939.

Lemp studied at the Beaux Arts under George Leroux, Louis Roger, and Emile Aubry. She was recognized as having exceptional talent.  She was trained in the classic tradition and, throughout her life clung to it.  In  1935, at the age of 25, she won the society's silver metal for portrait painting. Until then, John Singer Sargent  was the only other American to receive the medal.

She returned to the US in 1939 with the onset of  World War II.

In 1940, art works she did in France were exhibited at the Milwaukee Art Institute ( now Milwaukee Art Museum).

In 1941 she married  Edwin L. Pabst ( 1908-1977) in New York City.  He was her first cousin and the grandson of the founder of Pabst Brewing Co.

They resided briefly in Lake Forest, Illinois.  Then for the remainder of their lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

During the 1940s and 1950s Louise Lemp continued to paint vigorously, primarily portraits.  She had acclaimed shows in Milwaukee, New York, Chicago and Paris.
