Happy Birthday to Janet Fish, Painter of ‘After a Wedding’ from the Museum’s Permanent Collection

May

18

Born in Boston, Massachusetts on May 18, 1938, Janet Fish was raised on the island of Bermuda and came from a family of artists. Her grandfather, Clark Vorhees, was an American Impressionist painter, while her father was an art history teacher, and her mother, Florence Whistler Fish, was a sculptor and potter. Fish knew from a young age that she wanted to pursue the visual arts. She was talented in ceramics—having access to her mother’s kiln—and initially intended to be a sculptor.
