Lucile E. Blanch, née Lundquist (December 31, 1895 – October 31, 1981), was an American painter and Guggenheim Fellow.[1]


Lucile Blanch was born in 1895 in Hawley, Minnesota to the painter and lithographer Lucille Linguist. During World War I, she studied at the Minneapolis School of Art with her future husband Arnold Blanch, and other notable artists like Harry Gottlieb and Adolf Dehn. After 1918, she studied under artists like Boardman Robinson, Kenneth Hayes Miller, Frank Vincent DuMond and Frederick R. Gruger as part of the Art Students League of New York.

While in New York she married her husband Arnold Blanch. They later moved to Woodstock, New York where they helped build the Woodstock Art colony. They divorced in 1935.[2] She was friends with Eugenie Gershoy, who sculpted her at work.[3]

She received the Guggenheim Fellowship in 1933,[4] and from that point on her art was collected and was shown in a number of important galleries, notably the Whitney Museum.[5][6] She died in 1981 in Kingston, New York.


Blanch began her career focusing on realists subjects, however, increasingly she became an abstractionist.[6]
