The quintessential American impressionist — well-schooled in her craft and well-travelled, open to the possibilities of a changing world.

Jane Peterson is the quintessential American impressionist — well-schooled in her craft and well-traveled, open to the possibilities of a changing world. Her work reveals the vibrancy of the early 20th century and mirrors the concerns of a rapidly changing art world. Peterson explored the innovative painting techniques of her time, and her style moved from impressionist to fauvist, from realism to a modernist abstraction. The variety of works in this exhibition demonstrates Peterson’s artistic journey along with a glimpse of her private life. With photographs and archives, we get a sense of the independent woman, artist, and traveler whose works are displayed in museums around the world. This exhibition has been organized by the Mattatuck Museum.
