Regina Seiden trained at the Art Association of Montreal from 1914 to 1918 under William Brymner and Maurice Cullen. She then traveled to Paris, where she studied at the Académie Julian in 1921. She was one of the original members of the Beaver Hall Group in Montreal, and took part in their shows in 1921 and 1922. Seiden painted portraits - mostly of women, landscapes and genre scenes. Museums such as the National Gallery of Canada were early collectors of her work. In 1926, she went to Paris again, where she met and married the painter Eric Goldberg. She gave up painting to support his career, and taught art from 1949 to 1969 at the Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue in Westmount.

Soft and romantic, Nocturne is a gorgeous painting that shows the influence of Impressionism in its exquisite treatment of the wake of the moon across the water and the cool pastel tones of the water and sky. Seiden works over her surface with textured brushwork that allows many different colour tones to show through. The young women with their delicate dresses and long, loose hair are like dryads in a Canadian woodland Midsummer Night’s Dream.
