Jane Peterson: At Home and Abroad

Wood Gallery: August 5 to October 12

In this exhibition organized by the Mattatuck Museum, the career of American female Impressionist Jane Peterson (1876 – 1965) is examined. With a look at her introduction to Impressionism and her development under the influence of Fauvism, the exhibition includes works derived from her travels in Europe, North Africa, and America. The artist was extremely popular among major art collectors of her time, especially John D. Rockefeller. 

Jane Peterson was a graduate of the Pratt Institute. She used swaths of color, creating depths of light to create movement in works depicting places on three continents. Her works are included in museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and the Philadelphia Museum of Arts.
