About Jane Peterson

Against the conventions of her time, fiercely independent and committed artist Jane Peterson traveled the world solo, painting street scenes, urban and natural vistas, and bold, avant-garde compositions of flowers. Her critically acclaimed works combine an academic attention to naturalistic detail with thoroughly modern, striking color combinations and loose, expressive brushstrokes. Peterson rubbed shoulders with and drew influence from the artistic luminaries of the 20th century, attending Gertrude Stein’s famous salons while living in Paris and taking trips with Louis Comfort Tiffany, Maurice Prendergast, and Childe Hassam.

American, 1876-1965
