Jane Peterson: At Home and Abroad Exhibit

May 30 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 11:00am, repeating until July 22, 2018

A retrospective of one of America’s most innovative artists.

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 and offers 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, Waterbury, Connecticut.
