    ANNIE HURLBURT JACKSON (American, 1877-1960)

    Dappled Sunlight
    Watercolor on ivory
    4 x 5-1/8 inches (10.3 x 13.2 cm)
    Signed lower center: A. H. Jackson

    Purchased from Richard York Gallery, New York, June 30, 1988.

    Annie Hurlburt Jackson was a talented miniaturist based in Minneapolis. She trained with a variety of painters--most of them landscape specialists--including Eric Pape, Charles Woodbury, John F. Murphy, Charles Hawthorne, and Eliot O'Hara, and exhibited regularly with the Pennsylvania Society of Miniature Painters, earning a medal there in 1925. Her work was awarded a gold medal at the Sesquicentennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1926; a prize in Baltimore the same year; a medal in the Boston Tercentenary Exhibition in 1930; and a prize in Los Angeles in 1935. Her paintings form part of the permanent collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum. Jackson was particularly skillful in achieving a convincingly deep sense of space within a small format, both through an attentiveness to the fall of light on form, and through well-crafted design.
