Biography from Pgartventure:
Fay Lansner is a leading second generation abstract expressionist artist.

The daughter of Russian Jews who escaped tsarist Russia and settled in Philadelphia, Lansner began her art education at the Tyler School of Fine Arts in Philadelphia.  She moved to New York City in 1948 where she studied with Hans Hoffmann and at The Art Students League. She married journalist Kermit Lansner, who went on to become editor of Newsweek.  Later she studied in Paris under the direction of Fernand Leger and Andre Lhote.  She worked for many years in the 10th Street Studio Building and showed at the Hansa, Kornblee and Phoenix Galleries, as well as in the Hamptons with fellow artists including Miriam Shapiro, De Kooning and Larry Rivers.

In 1971, Lansner co-founded Women in the Arts (WIA), an organization seeking to change both public and institutional attitudes toward women artists.   In 1972, group members demonstrated in front of the Museum of Modern Art protesting discriminatory curatorial practices.  The landmark Women Choose Women show of works by 109 women artists opened shortly after the protest at the New York Cultural Center in 1973.

Since her formative studies with Hoffmann, abstraction and the figurative have been parallel concerns for the artist in which to paint and draw the human figure.
