"Jane Peterson is one of my favorite artists, not only because of her incredible talents, but also because of her pluck and perseverance carving an international reputation at a time when feminine careers were confined to the household. Her scenes of New England villages, such as The Red House, Gloucester, Massachusetts, feature her mastery of composition, highlighted by her original use of telephone poles and wires that deepen the perspective and define planes. The Delaware Art Museum has a similar scene, which they date to 1916, after Peterson returned from her trip to Alaska with her friend, the painter and designer, Louis Comfort Tiffany. This scene shows the influence of her studies with the famed Spanish painter Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (1863-1923), featuring high-keyed colors and flowing brushwork that would define her paintings thereafter." - Marcia L. Vose, Vice-President
