Early Morning Harbor Oil Painting by Jane Peterson - image 1 of 4

Peaceful early morning harbor scene. Oil painting on artist board. Signed lower left. In important period frame decorated by the artist. Jane Peterson (1876-1965) is one of the top female post-impressionist painters of the early 20th century. She rose from humble beginnings in the Midwest, making her way to NYC to attend the Pratt Institute. This circa 1910 painting was created during Ms. Peterson’s most innovative period (1910-1930) in which she used bold lollipop colors and broad brush strokes. During this time she produced her most important work. Ms. Peterson’s trips to Venice inspired her to create exuberant paintings glowing with color. She led an independent and adventurous life, traveling throughout Europe to study with influential painters, culminating in her approach of combining techniques and styles. She also traveled with Louis Comfort Tiffany on a national painting expedition in his private railway car. Ms. Peterson became famous for a wide range of works, from landscapes to still lifes, blending impressionist and expressionist movements. She exhibited throughout the United States and in Paris. The Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, Connecticut developed a wonderful (traveling) exhibition on Jane Peterson in 2018. Dimensions: 13.8” W x 10.9” size H image size; 19” W x 16” H framed size
