Biography photo for Annie Hurlburt Jackson
Annie Hurlburt Jackson, a specialist in miniatures, chalk drawing, and floral pastels, was born in 1877 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 1896 she settled in Brookline, Massachusetts, and studied under Eric Pape, Hermann Dudley Murphy, Charles H. Woodbury, Charles W. Hawthorne, and Eliot O'Hara. Jackson never married and lived with her brother, Robert Fuller Jackson, a Harvard graduate, who was a painter, architect, designer, and teacher.

Jackson was a regular contributor to the annual exhibitions of the Pennsylvania Society of Miniature Painters from 1906 until 1939, became an honorary life member and received the Society's Medal of Honor in 1925. She displayed her miniatures locally and nationally, including the National Academy of Design.

Jackson painted her miniatures in bust, three-quarter, or full-length formats in rectangular or oval frames, frequently five inches in height, using watercolors on ivory. She often included pets or accessories, or placed the sitter in a light-filled room. Jackson's finely painted miniatures are in the collections of the Baltimore Museum of Art, Worcester Art Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
