Born in Chicago, Lundeberg (1908-1999) studied art at the Stickney School of Art in Pasadena. There she was strongly influenced by her teacher, Lorser Feitelson, whom she later married. In 1933 they co-founded an art movement called 'New Classicism' or 'Post-Surrealism.' Lundeberg wrote its first theoretical manifesto the following year. She did realistic mural and easel projects for the Federal Art Project from 1933-1942, while continuing to do more experimental work privately. A New Deal mural of hers in Orange County's Fullerton recently underwent restoration. Her work has been shown in major national exhibitions since the late 1930s. (Robin K.
