Jane Emmet de Glehn (1873-1961) studied at the Art Student's League in New York City, and also studied for a time in Europe. After returning to America from her Grand Tour, she met and married the British impressionist painter Wilfrid de Glehn (1870–1951) in 1904. She and her husband were close friends with Sargent and they frequently traveled and painted together. Jane Emmet de Glehn was reputedly an accomplished artist but not a very prolific or ambitious one. Her older sisters Rosina Emmet Sherwood and Lydia Field Emmet both become successful (and more well-known) artists, as well as their first cousin, Ellen Emmet Rand.
