Woman reading at table

I came across this painting at the blog The 20th century in pictures last week, and I was impressed. Jane Peterson (1876–1965) was an American artist, whose Wikipedia entry does not give much more information (I found much more here). Her style has elements of  impressionism, fauvism, and art nouveau. The painting shown here dates from around 1920. More about Peterson in the Wikipedia article linked to below.
