This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Painter Sylvia Plimack Mangold is essentially an abstractionist who continued to apply abstract dicta in her work as she moved toward photo-realism, and later in her career, plein-air realism when she moved to Washingtonville, New York, where she currently resides. Her work has been widely exhibited including New York galleries, Brooke Alexander and Fischbach, and Europe galleries, Cardin in Paris, Galerie Verna in Zurich, and Documenta 6 in Kassel, Germany.

Mangold was born in 1938 in the Bronx, New York, attending the High School of Music and Art, then Cooper Union in New York City from 1956 to 1959. She studied at Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut from 1959 to 1961, gaining her B.F.A. Degree. She received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1974. Mangold taught drawing and painting from 1971 to 1981 in New York City at the School of Visual Arts.

Jules and Nancy Heller, "North American Women Artists of the 20th Century"
Sylvia Plimack Mangold was born in New York City on September 18, 1938. She studied at Cooper Union and at Yale University Art School where she got her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1961. She married Robert Mangold after her graduation and they had two children, James and Andrew. Together the Mangolds worked as apartment house superintendents in their early years. From the start their work differed greatly. Sylvia Plimack is known for her intensely observed paintings of trees; unlike her husband she works from nature.

They moved to a comfortable farmhouse in Washingtonville, New York where they lived a very simple life. Their comfortable farmhouse was homey, lived-in and unpretentious. They painted in two separate studios on the property; her main workplace was a building without electricity set on a windblown hill overlooking the Hudson River.

Sylvia Mangold was influenced by Georgia O'Keeffe, Rene Magritte, Edward Hopper, William Harnett, Jasper Johns and Philip Pearlstein, among others. She served as instructor of painting and drawings at the School of Visual Arts in New York. In 1974, she travelled to Tuscany, Italy.
