Lizzy Ansingh came from an artistic family as both her grandfather, Johann Georg Schwartze, and her aunt, Thérèse Schwartze, were painters. Ansingh herself had studied in Amsterdam and was a member of the so-called Amsterdam Joffers, which included Marie van Altena Regteren, Coba Ritsema, Ans van den Berg, Jacoba Surie, Nelly Bodenheim, Betsy Westendorp-Osieck, and Stumpff Jo Bauer. The importance of this group was primarily to function as role models for younger women painters in the Netherlands, especially during and after the 1970s. In addition to portraits, Lizzy Ansingh was well-known for the painting of dolls, and also wrote two children's books.
