Artist Profile

Helen Lundeberg

1908-1999

Helen Lundeberg was one of the most important California modernist painters of the twentieth century. Throughout her sixty-year career, she created works that were imbued with her personal vision. Late in life, she observed, “My work has been concerned, in varying modes of pictorial structure and various degrees of representation and abstraction, with the effort to embody, and to evoke states of mind, moods and emotions.” Lundeberg began to explore geometric abstraction in the 1950s and her works were described as both formal and lyrical. Typically, they are painted in limited palette, as seen in Moonscape.
