    Art Brokerage: Lynne Mapp Drexler American Artist: b. 1928-1999. Lynne Drexler (1928 – 1999) was an American abstract and representational artist, who was a painter and photographer. Lynne Drexler was born and raised in the Newport News, Virginia area. She moved to New York City in the mid to late 1950s to further her study art under Robert Motherwell at Hunter College and Hans Hofmann, under their tutelage she developed an interest in Abstract Expressionism. Motherwell taught her composition and draftsmanship techniques and the philosophy "that to be an artist meant first and foremost that one had to create work worthy of attention". Her tendency to create vibrant paintings using a free brush stroke was influenced by Hofman and the work of Henri Matisse. Hofman also introduced the notion that composition is influenced by color, which he called the "push-pull" concept. In the late 1950s she was an abstract expressionist and was "counted among an important group of women artists whose figural and landscape works were often overlooked during the heyday of post-abstract expressionist modernism - artists such as Jane Freilicher, Lois Dodd, and Jane Wilson."
