Lynne Drexler was one of Monhegan's early abstract expressionist painters. She studied with Hans Hofmann and Robert Motherwell. Her paintings are included in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, the Portland Museum of Art and the Farnsworth Art Museum.
The Monhegan Museum had a show of 50 of her works from July 1, 2008 to September 30, 2008 and the show moved to the Portland Museum of Art from December 6, 2008 to March 1, 2009. An entirely new exhibition of Lynne's paintings took place during the spring and summer of 2009 at the Palmina & Stephen Pace Gallery of Art at Fryeburg Academy.
One of Lynne's spectacular large abstract works was prominently featured in Architectural Digest's 2015 article on singer-songwriter John Legend's and model Christine Teigen's Manhattan apartment.
We are very pleased to offer these paintings from several private collections. We also have several other abstract and representational works on paper by Lynne on our other website featuring work by Monhegan artists. These works have never been seen before and come directly from Lynne's estate.
