  • Notes 
    • Jane Erin Emmet de Glehn (born Jane Erin Emmet in 1873; died 20 February 1961)[1] was an American figure and portrait painter. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Emmet_de_Glehn
    • Jane Erin Emmet was born at New Rochelle, New York on October 8th 1873, daughter of William Jenkins Emmet (son Robert Emmet*) and Julia Colt Pierson Emmet. Jane was the youngest of ten children and studied art along with her sister Lydia and cousin Ellen Emmet Rand, known as "Bay", at the Art Students League in New York, where both William Merritt Chase (1848-1916) and John Henry Twatchman (1853-1902) were teaching. Together in Paris with her sister Bay she continued her studies principally under Fred MacMonnies.
      It was most likely through her cousin Bay that Jane first met her future husband Wilfrid de Glehn who had been studying at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and who was in America with John Singer Sargent to assist with the installation of the Boston Public Library Murals. Once they had married in 1904 at her family home and honeymooned in New Hampshire, Jane Emmet returned with her husband to London and set up house in the artistic quarter of LondonĀ“s Chelsea. John Singer SargentĀ“s initial concern about the effect of the marriage on his friendship with Wilfrid proved unfounded, and together as a triumvirate they toured much of Europe frequently painting alongside each other, amongst the artistic and literary friends and acquaintances Jane brought to their trips was her cousin the writer Henry James.
