532: Jane Peterson (American, 1876-1965) Canal Venice S

Lot 0532 Details

Description
Jane Peterson (American, 1876-1965)

Canal Venice
Signed "JANE PETERSON" l.l., identified on two labels affixed to the reverse.
Oil on canvas, 40 x 30 in. (101.5 x 76.0 cm), in a Newcomb-Macklin Company frame.
Condition: Patch reinforcements, retouch, craquelure.

Provenance: Kaminski Auctions, Beverly, Massachusetts, January 23, 1993, # 1.

N.B. Jane Peterson loved Venice. It was one of her favorite places to paint. In the view at hand of a narrow canal she played masterfully with the contrast of warm light and cool shadow. Peterson enlivened the scene with figures gathered along the walkway and with bold brushwork in the reflections in the water. Peterson expert Jonathan Joseph described the painting as a fine example of her early work, probably executed prior to Peterson's study with Joaquín Sorolla in 1909. Peterson first visited Venice in 1907.

We would like to thank Jonathan Joseph, who reviewed the present painting via digital photographs and confirmed its authenticity.
