This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Mary Regensburg Feist (b. 1914)

Mary Regensburg Feist first exhibited in the 1930s in New York City and Santa Fe, New Mexico, and she is still painting in 2008.

Ms. Feist was born and raised in New York City.  As a young child, she showed both ability and a keen interest in art, and her parents, Melville and Sophy Regensburg, encouraged her to develop her talents.  She started studying with Tony Nell while in grammar school.  During high school, at Dalton, she was excused at noon every day to study at the Grand Central Art School.  She was accepted at the Yale School of Art but elected to study with John Sloan instead, which she did in New York from 1932 through 1936 and during the summer of 1936 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Ms. Feist was member of the Society of Independent Artists, and her work appeared alongside works of such artists as John Sloan, Maurice Prendergast, Philip Evergood, and Joseph Stella at their annual shows.  An active exhibitor in New York City, she also had works in group shows at the Montross and Saidenberg galleries.  In 1936, she had two solo shows, at Montross and at the Santa Fe Museum of Art in New Mexico.

More recently, Ms. Feist had a solo show—"Family and Friends"—at the Westmoreland Museum of Art in Greensburg, PA., in 1996.  Her work has also been included in two group shows, at Westmoreland and at the Wigmore Gallery in New York City and in a three-woman show, "Outsider Insider" at the Gallery Schlesinger.  Her paintings are in its permanent collection of the New Mexico Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe and the Westmoreland Museum of Art in Greensburg, PA.
