Lot 0813 Details

Description
"Cosmos in a Vase," stunning oil on canvas still life by Jane Peterson. It is signed in the lower right, and has a plaque in the lower middle. Bright colors of pink and purple with a bouquet of petunias and gold leaf frame. Provenance: Acquired at Sotheby's Arcade in '89. Born Jennie Christine in Elgin, Illinois, she officially changed her name to Jane Peterson in 1909 after her first success as an artist. Her family was of humble background but certainly not poverty stricken. She became famous for a wide range of works from landscapes to still-lives that blend Impressionist and Expressionist movements. As a woman, her life was much more independent and adventurous than those of most of her contemporaries, and she traveled widely to paint including joining Louis Comfort Tiffany on a continental painting expedition in his private railway car.In 1916, she exhibited work she had painted in the Pacific Northwest while traveling with Louis Tiffany. By 1916, she was also doing much painting of colorful beach scenes with Maurice Prendergast and went on to paint many landscapes and seascapes. She completed many floral subjects, which were inspired by the gardens of her summer house in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Many of her beach and pier scenes were from painting trips to artist colonies along the Massachusetts coast. Signed lower right.Overall size: 37 1/2 x 32 1/2 in.Sight size: 29 1/2 x 24 1/2 in.Please note that all sales are final. No refunds will be given under any circumstances.
