Jane C. Mahon Stanley (Mrs. Louis Crandall Stanley)   (1863-1940)

Born in Detroit, Michigan in 1863, she was the daughter-in-law of artist John Mix Stanley.  A noted watercolor artist in Detroit, she specialized in buildings, street scenes, bridges, and landscapes.  Mrs. Stanley worked and studied in many foreign countries: Spain, France, Guatemala, and Canada among others, and following foreign travels in 1927 and 1928, she spent more than a year in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Tucson, Arizona and in 1930 spent the winter in Tucson. During this time she did paintings with titles including San Xavier Mission, Catalina Mountains, Tucson; In Sabrino Canyon, Tucson; and Cinder Hill, Flagstaff. She was also in California where she painted at Laguna and Carmel.

One of the sixteen true charter members of the Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors, she joined February 232, 1903 and was one of the most active workers for the Society until her death.  During her period of active membership she held each of the various offices except that of president.

The artist exhibited at the National Academy of Art, New York; Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia; the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Memorial Hall, Ann Arbor, Michigan.  She was a member of the first Detroit Water Color Society and was for many years a member of the National Society of Western Artists.  Also, she held membership in the Ann Arbor Art Association, the Art Club of Detroit and the American Federation of Artists.
