Jane Wilson was a gifted painter in the rendering of light, color and landscapes. She was also one of the last surviving members of the celebrated group of artists and writers who gravitated to the Cedar Tavern in New York and to live and work in the Hamptons. Jane Wilson died in New York on January 13, 2015 at 90 years old. Wilson's career spanned more than six decades and was a highly-regarded artist.
Following are just a few of Jane Wilson's landscape paintings. They include The Wave, an artwork that's part of The Parrish's permanent collection. The painting was inspired by the sea and Wilson's experience of living close by, according to The Parrish. It also draws inspiration from the Midwestern flat lands of her childhood.
“My paintings,” Wilson has said, “come out of my efforts to get color to embody the atmosphere we all live in.”
