Description

This unsigned oil painting of a village illuminated by moonlight exhibits all of the hallmarks of artist Charles Rollo Peters, painter of California nocturnes. Of particular interest to Peters were landscapes and villages in coastal regions, featuring windswept trees and adobe structures - likely because they offered more reflection of moonlight. Here, a dimly lit pathway winds between glowing walls of cottages and leads to a bay or lake; the night sky is dotted with stars. It is clear that the artist was entranced by the quiet nightscape, and labored to capture its beauty, to great success.
