What began as the rediscovery of one woman’s incredible paintings has blossomed into five kindred exhibitions opening in Portsmouth. Perfectly timed, spring 2018 kicks off a year filled with vibrant artwork by talented women in the galleries of the Portsmouth Historical Society at Discover Portsmouth and the John Paul Jones House Museum.
Gertrude Fiske: American Master opens April 6 and runs through September 30 in the historic Academy Gallery at 10 Middle Street. A student of top American Impressionists, including Edmund C. Tarbell in Boston and Charles Woodbury in Ogunquit, Maine, Fiske developed a unique way of seeing the world. Curated by Lainey McCartney, this diverse collection of 66 works, some unseen by the public, reveals a mastery of the painter’s craft being fully recognized again for the first time since her zenith in the first quarter of the twentieth century.
Gertrude Fiske (1879-1961) dedicated her entire life to her art. Critics in her era recognized Fiske as adventurous, technically superb, bold, and marked “with a power and depth that very few artists, male or female, had ever achieved.”
