MRS. ASTOR BUYS A LEMON
Mrs. Vincent Astor bought a Sondra Lipton still-life painting of lemons.
A New York newspaper wrote about it with the headline that Mrs. Astor
Buys A Lemon. She was not amusedand made it knownbecause she
did not want personal publicityonly attention to her charitable
works. As a result, this drew nationwide publicity to Sondra Lipton and
Charming vegetable paintings. Town & Country
A bunch of kohlrabi, a basket of tangerines or simple bowls of
flowers are turning on The Ladies these days. These are the subjects of
the small oil paintings by Sondra Lipton, done in great detail against
dark backgrounds in the styles of the 17th-century Dutch masters.
The New York Post
The arrangements of flowers, fruit and vegetables are small but
ultrarealistic, gaining an almost three-dimensional feel from their
highly lacquered surfaces." The Milwaukee Journal
Ms. Liptons still lifes take as their subjects: fruit and
vegetables, breads, a row of spring flowers in terra-cotta pots, intricately
woven baskets holding fruit and flowers and an array of blue and white
Chinese vases. The Litchfield County Times

INSIDE AN IRISH HOUSE BY SYBIL CONNOLLY
Liptons Lilies of the Valley still life was featured in Sybil
Connollys coffee-table book, Inside An Irish House.
WHAT SONDRA LIPTON SAYS ABOUT HER PAINTINGS
Just flowers and vegetables and fruit and all those lovely curious
embellishments of the old Flemish painters were so fond of. Butterflies,
ladybugs, shells, snails, dewdrops. A flower is always prettier with a
little dew on it.
She describes her work similar to the style of the 17th and 18th-century
Dutch/Flemish artists. I continue in that realistic tradition, but
I give the still lifes a more modern feeling. I also sometimes use oil
on paper, which makes the painting lighter.
