Jane Peterson studied at the Pratt Institute of Art from 1885-1901, at the Art Students League and then went abroad to study in London, Paris and Madrid. She became one of the leading women in the Post-Impressionist movement and reached the height of her fame in the 1920s. Between 1910 and 1930, Peterson held more than 100 exhibits. Her work began with New England beach and pier scenes and her first solo show was held in Boston in 1909. Soon afterwards she had a second, successful exhibition in NYC. However, after a brief trip to Turkey and her marriage in 1925, Peterson began to focus most of her time on large floral paintings. These works were stylized with rich brocades, gold and/or silver backgrounds and bold expression. Peterson taught watercolor courses at the Art Students League from 1913-1919 and used the money she earned to finance trips to Europe. There she was exposed to Fauvism, Impressionism, Expressionism and very early Cubism. Because her vast experience in style movement, she was considered a vital link between American Impressionism and Expressionism. Her painting “Toilette” (1922) was singled out in a review by the New York Society of Painters for its hints of Impressionism combined with Art Noveau and eludes but any specific school.
