This exhibition celebrates the Norton’s strong collection of work by American Impressionist Jane Peterson. Peterson was a leading figure in the early Palm Beach art community beginning in the 1910s and continued to depict the area’s tropical landscape for the next 30 years. Her masterful rendering of the brilliant South Florida sun contrasts with her evocation of sites in Europe, especially the silvery atmosphere of her favorite place, Venice. The Norton’s eight oils and watercolors demonstrate Peterson’s success as an Impressionist who could perfectly capture a particular place and time
