This biography from the Archives of AskART:


Oliver, born in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1859, was a product of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, a student of Frank W. Benson and Edmund Tarbell, and she studied privately with Philip L. Hale and Charles Woodbury.  Besides working as a portrait, figure, miniature and flower painter, Oliver was a writer on art for the Boston Sunday Advertiser and she published reviews elsewhere.  She joined various organizations and exhibited sporadically: at the Art Institute of Chicago (1905-16), at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, at the Corcoran Gallery in 1910, and at the National Academy of Design three years later.  She showed two paintings at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco and had a one-woman show at Doll and Richards Gallery in 1918. 

In addition, Jean Nutting Oliver took part in shows at the Society of Independent Artists (1917-26), at the Gloucester Society of Artists, and at the North Shore Arts Association.  Around 1920, she painted The Salt Ship, Provincetown, a loose, sketchy oil on board, highlighted with thick impasto pigment, applied with broad, horizontal brushstrokes.  Oliver is also known for her intimate genre scenes and miniature paintings.

The artist passed away in Boston in 1946.
