Who was the woman artist Loïs Frederick?

The woman artist Loïs Frederick studied fine art at the University of Nebraska and the Kansas City Art Institute. After receiving the very prestigious Fulbright award in 1953, the painter was awarded the scholarship for a second time in the following year—a very rare achievement. The artist decided to move to Paris to pursue her artistic training, a popular choice among American artists at the time. Loïs Frederick thus found her place in the midst of the vibrant American cultural scene in the French capital. Maintaining contact with her native country’s culture, she remained a fundamentally American artist.
