"Not always concerned with contrasting town and country, artists like Jane Peterson (1876-1965) found natural scenes in the urban setting. In Central Park, 1918, rather than juxtaposing the man-made structures with the natural elements, she used softer lines and chose a palette that would join the two together. When not in the city, Peterson was in Gloucester, Massachusetts, painting vivid harbor scenes. The pleasure afforded to artists who were able to spend time and work in the artist colonies seemed to spill over into depictions of urban subject matter." (
