Jane Haslem Gallery, Dupont Circle House Tour 2014

 

Hillyer is one of the most exclusive streets in Washington. Consisting of a single block, this beautiful spot is perfectly placed between Connecticut Avenue on the east and giving onto 21st Street on the west, more or less at the door of the Phillips Collection. When a young Jane Haslem was looking for a permanent residence in Washington for her family and her gallery, which had moved three times, Laughlin Phillips advised her about a house just steps from the his art museum. The four story building built in 1886, had been home to the Holton Arms School for Girls until after the turn of the last century.

Today Jane and Jack Haslem’s elegant abode retains many original features including the basement level kitchen, intact, but now serving as a pantry to store art between shows. The Jane Haslem Gallery, housed on the basement and first floors of this grand townhouse, specializes in American print innovators. An artist, herself with a BA in painting from DePauw University, Jane is also an innovator, having launched the first site for commercial dealers to display and sell art on the internet nearly twenty years ago.
