JANE WILSON

About the Artist

Born on April 29, Willem de Kooning, and Jackson Pollock, Andy WarholJane Wilson was an American painter best known for her horizon landscapes of sunsets, storms, clouds, and the ocean rendered in expressive and vibrant colors. Over her career, she transitioned from Abstract-Expressionist works to landscapes, a change attributable to her many social connections with New York-based artists such as 1924 in Seymour, IA, Wilson cited her upbringing in the Great Plains as an influence on her landscape paintings. She also honed her style when she went on to study at the University of Iowa under Dr. Lester Longman.

 

Today, Wilson’s work is represented by DC Moore Gallery in New York, and her paintings are in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, among others. She died on January 13, 2015 in New York, NY
