JULIE HART-BEERS SUITE
A New Jersey artist known for painting landscapes along the Hudson River
Julie Hart Beers Kempson, a painter of the Hudson River School, was one of very few professional women landscape painters in nineteenth-century America and the only one to achieve any renown.
When she was eighteen years old, Beers met her first husband, George Washington Beers (1829-60), a journalist for the Albany Evening Journal. They had two children, George Beers later died 1860, she and her daughters relocated to Brooklyn NY where she later married the Physician Peter Kempson, in Brooklyn she opened a studio continue painting and exhibiting her work.
In the exhibition catalog Women Artists of America, 1707–1964 that “Mrs. Julie Hart Beers Kempson became the only woman artist of the century to specialize in the landscape.” That she was a rarity is easily explained, Gerdts wrote: “It is perhaps not surprising to find so few women landscapists since the rigors of painting outdoors and the unseemliness of women engaging in this activity during the Victorian era acted as a deterrent.
Julie Hart Beers Kempson demonstrated that women landscape painters were the equal of men, even given the “rigors of painting outdoors.” While largely unappreciated in her own time, her talent and dedication not only produced outstanding works of art but also broke important ground for the female landscapists who would follow her.
