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-20’s 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. During his life, Peters was a highly influential California artist, receiving great acclaim for the works he displayed at the Del Monte Hotel Gallery. His paintings are almost invariably nocturnes of the crumbling historic adobes left from the Spanish Colonial era.
