Active in New York City in the 1930s, Sally Lustig was a painter who worked primarily with oil and watercolor. "She thinned her oils to washes, which she appled to canvas for an effect similar to watercolor."
Lustig was a student in Germany at the Academy of Fine Art, Munich* and at the National Academy of Design* in New York.
Memberships included the National Association of Women Artists*, a group with whom she also exhibited from 1935 to 1938. At the National Academy of Design exhibition of 1932, she entered a painting, The Music Lesson, and in 1934, at the Salons of America*, she exhibited Vanity-the Lesson. In 1936, Lustig had a solo exhibition at the Argent Gallery in New York.
