Charles Rollo Peters (1862-1928)

Charles Rollo Peters was born in San Francisco in 1862 where he studied at the School of Design and with Jules Tavernier. In his mid-20ís Peters left for Europe to study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and the Academie Julian in Paris. While abroad, Peters was greatly influenced by the work of James McNeil Whistler (who was likewise impressed with Peters). Upon returning to the U.S., Peters settled on a 30-acre estate in Monterey where he entertained visiting artist friends lavishly and received great acclaim for his work. His paintings from this period are (almost invariably) nocturnes of the crumbling historic adobes left from Spanish Colonial times. In 1909, following family tragedies Peters remarried and moved back to San Francisco, where he died in 1928.
