Born 1895 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Died 1987 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Lucia Stern (neé Martha Ida Lucia Karker), was largely self-taught as a painter and sculptor; her formal training was in music and literature.
She married Erick Stern, a Milwaukee lawyer, in 1930. Stern served on the board of the Milwaukee Art Institute from 1933 and became a trustee in 1967 when it was the Milwaukee Art Center.
She didn't begin to work regularly as an artist until 1935. She became a docent and lecturer at the Milwaukee Art Institute in 1942, continuing in that capacity for the next forty years. Stern was instrumental in beginning the "Touch the Great" and "Women in the Arts" lecture series at the Milwaukee Art Center. Her characteristic approach in painting, lecturing and writing was to borrow styles or quotes from her contemporaries and modify them.Stern was recognized as one of the leading promulgators of non-objective art in the United States. She absorbed the modernist spirit from Picasso and Brancusi, but experimental non-objective and abstract artists such as Man Ray, Moholy-Nagy, and Naum Gabo also influenced her. Her work evolved over a fifty-year period and encompassed decoupage, drawing, painting, and sculpture, with an increasing emphasis on three-dimensional works. Stern is remembered primarily for her mixed media works combining stitched lines and cut net with more traditional artistic media, and for her early use of abstract compositions. She is also remembered for her warm, optimistic nature and for her dedication to the arts as an artist and spokesperson. In 1972, Stern was elected "Woman of the Year" by the Friends of Art of the Milwaukee Art Center.
