GLENS FALLS, NY.- Jane Peterson (1876-1965) was born to Scandinavian immigrants in a Midwestern town just a decade after the Civil War. Ideas of women pursuing higher education and even careers were just gaining traction when the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago featured The Woman's Building.

There, the teenager saw paintings by Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) and Mary MacMonnies (1858-1946), and likely learned about the growing women's suffrage movement. Inspired and with her sights set on a career as an artist, Peterson ventured to New York City and enrolled at the Pratt Institute.

She went on to travel the world, befriend major artists of the time, earn a generous living, and build a life as a modern career woman. Her accomplishments are examined in Jane Peterson: At Home and Abroad, an exhibition opening Sunday, August 5, at The Hyde Collection.

With more than eighty paintings and select memorabilia, the exhibition follows Peterson's travels, her journeys through art movements, and the way she forged a path as an independent woman in a changing world. The exhibition includes works from her travels in Europe, North Africa, and at home in the United States, beginning with her introduction to Impressionism.

Peterson studied with Frank Brangwyn, Jacques Blanche, Andre L’Hote, and Joaquin Sorolla, who greatly influenced her. She painted with John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam, and Maurice Prendergast. She traveled extensively with Louis Comfort Tiffany, and socialized with such artists as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.

“Jane Peterson was popular during her lifetime and this retrospective of her career makes clear why,” said Jonathan Canning, director of curatorial affairs and programming at The Hyde Collection. “She was adventurous, forward-thinking, and thrived at a point in history when women were just beginning to demand their rights. Through this exhibition, we see her evolution and, with it, the changing of the times.”

Peterson enjoyed great success throughout her career and was extremely popular among major art collectors of her time, especially John D. Rockefeller. 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 Art.

Jane Peterson: At Home and Abroad runs through October 12 in Wood and Feibes & Schmitt Galleries.
