Jane Peterson adeptly combined style, forms, and techniques form a variety of teachers and prevalent movements of her era, including Impressionism, Fauvism, and Expressionism into a unique personal style. After studying with Arthur Wesley Dow in New York, she went to Paris to study with Jacques-Emile Blanche. Her loose brushwork and vibrant palette also demonstrates the influence of Sorolla, with whom she studied in Madrid for six months in 1909. Peterson spent extended periods painting in Europe, frequently returning to Venice where she captured the effects of light shimmering on the canals with vivid colors and expressive brushwork.
