This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Jane Whipple Green, born 1910 in Brusly, Louisiana, received her Fine Arts Degree at Newcomb College, Tulane University, in New Orleans.  She studied painting with Ellsworth Woodward and ceramic design with Sadie Irvine, long-time decorator for the well-known Newcomb Pottery.  Green then attended the Art Students League in New York City, where she studied under Robert Laurent, sculptor, and William Blackman, life studies.

She won early recognition for works included in shows at the Delgado Museum in New Orleans and the Institute of Fine Arts in Chicago.  In 1933 she was featured as an upcoming young artist in the Paris art magazine La Revue Moderne.  The article accompanying photos of her watercolor landscape and portrait sculpture states,  "One sees that the artist was highly endowed and destined to be successful?Her spontaneity of expression and her strong personality reveal a very versatile talent for which one can hope a great deal." 

Green's style varied from representational to abstract expressionism, and her subject matter ranged from portraits and landscapes to studies in form and color.  Though she painted mostly in oils and acrylics on canvas, she also worked with watercolors, drawings, and etchings.  She sculpted in clay and taught ceramics to many Girl Scouts over the years.  She exhibited widely in one-man and group shows in New York City, in Coburg, Germany, and in many galleries, local and state shows in New Jersey. 

Green was a member of the Westfield Art Association, The Garden State Watercolor Society, Scotch Plains-Fanwood Arts Association, N. J. Center for Visual Arts, Hunterdon Art Center, The Artists? League of Central New Jersey, The American Artists' Professional League. She won art show prizes at the Westfield and Scotch Plains-Fanwood Art Associations group shows over the years, and she won Best of Show in the Union County Senior Show when she was in her 90s.

Jane Whipple Green was a founding member of the Federated Art Association of New Jersey (FAA-NJ) in 1969.  She served as President from 1977-1981 and worked with N.J. Governor Thomas Keane to bring more state-wide recognition of, and appreciation for, the arts.  For her efforts, she received the Grumbacher ?Gold Medallion? Award for Special Honor, Merit, and Service to her organization and the State of New Jersey.  Until 1992 she continued to serve as Board member and Publication Director for FAA-NJ.

Green was married to A. Donald Green, M.I.T. chemical engineer and Esso (now Exxon) executive, for over 50 years.  They lived in Westfield, then Mountainside, New Jersey, and raised three daughters. She died in 2007.
