  • Artist Biography
    • Jane Vivian (Flourished from 1850-1880) It is unusual to come across an artist with such considerable talent and very little biographical information. The little we know of Jane Vivian is that she exhibited five works at the Royal Society of British Artists (three of them Venetian scenes), and today her work is exhibited in museums in cities throughout Britain, including Croydon, Gateshead, and Preston. There are several possible explanations for her relative anonymity. Perhaps as a lady in Victorian Britain, Jane Vivian was excluded from the formal training that academies could offer. Alternatively she may have been from a wealthy family and as such never needed to rely on income derived from her paintings for a living, subsequently she would hardly ever exhibited. What is not in doubt is her talent for capturing the spirit of perhaps the worlds most romantic and cultural city.
