Lipton, a celebrated model (runway, couture, fashion shows, print,
TV) for Vogue, Dior, Bill Blass, Geoffrey Beene, and Givenchy,
grew up in New York. Her mother introduced to her the great art
of the citys museums.
While modeling, raising a child, and creating beautiful living
spaces, Lipton began to paint the flower arrangements, fruits, vegetables
and objects she had in her homeand refrigerator. After a day
of modeling, and being on her feet, she hopped on the bed, a quiet,
comfortable space to relaxand paint.
Sondra Liptons luscious renditions of fruits, flowers, vegetables,
breads artfully arranged in antique vases and porcelain baskets
(which draw on the traditions of Flemish and French still lifes
of the 17th and 18th century) attracted the attention of late Jacqueline
Kennedy Onassis, Isaac Stern and Mrs. Vincent Astor, James Earl
Jones, the Mellon and Rockefeller families, who purchased them.
In addition to her international art shows and television appearances,
Sondra Lipton is noted in Whos Who of American Women and
Whos Who in American Art.
