On Sunday, August 5, The Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, New York opened complementary exhibitions: “Jane Peterson: At Home and Abroad” and “Changing the Landscape: Women Impressionists from the Thomas Clark Collection.”
Jane Peterson was a prominent early twentieth-century Impressionist. She traveled extensively and befriended the likes of Arthur Dow, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Pablo Picasso. She experienced great success in her lifetime and was collected by John D. Rockefeller.
“Changing the Landscape: Women Impressionists from the Thomas Clark Collection” is drawn from local collector Thomas Clark’s extensive collection, and includes the works of more than fifteen female Impressionists from the late 1800s and early 1900s.
We welcome Jonathan Canning and Jenny Hutchinson to tell us more. Jonathan is The Hyde’s Director of Curatorial Affairs and Programming and Jenny is a museum education.
