Born in Illinois, Jane Peterson enrolled in art schools in New York and studied in Europe with the acclaimed Spanish Impressionist Joaquin Sorolla. Between 1907 and 1924 she traveled extensively in Europe, the Middle East, and coastal New England, filling her canvases with picturesque views of Gloucester, Venice, Istanbul, and Egypt. In 1910 she visited North Africa; this shimmering, light-filled landscape appears to depict the Nile River.
