BIOGRAPHY: Born (Stella) Molly Friedman to Carlaman and Francesca (Seandel) Friedman in New York City, she worked as a commercial artist before attending the National Academy of Design in New York for one year. She was married on May 1, 1926, to Dr. David L. Drabkin, later chair of the department of biochemistry, Graduate School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania.In the early 1930s, the Drabkins moved to Philadelphia, and Stella Drabkin became integrally involved in the art community of her adopted city. She studied at the Philadelphia Graphic Sketch Club with Earl Sorter, an illustrator known for fine etchings of cityscapes. Drabkin herself did a number of prints of the street life of Philadelphia. For example, in Bargain Sale I and II, Pushcarts I and II, and Free Day at the Zoo, all from the 1930s series Old Philadelphia, she concentrated on depicting working-class, ethnic neighborhoods.In 1933, shortly after Drabkin's arrival in Philadelphia, she entered a painting in the Gimbel Competition. It was her inaugural exhibition outside of New York, and she was the recipient of first prize. Among other awards won over the years was the American Color Print Society Prize (1944), the Katzman Prize of the Print Club of Philadelphia (1955), and the New Jersey State Museum Purchase Prize (1967).In an interview given in 1945 to Art Alliance Bulletin, Drabkin professed to have begun painting at the age of two. She also recalled the great pride and pleasure she felt when, in the first grade, her teacher held up her drawing for the class to admire. In the same interview, she reports having no favorite medium, stating that "an artist should work in various medi[a], depending on the ideas he intends to express."
