Frederick Carl Frieseke is a second-generation American Impressionist who spent much of his productive time as an expatriate in France. Frieseke studied first at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Students League in New York before moving to France for the Académie Julian, where he learned from Benjamin Constant and Jean-Paul Laurens, and later the art colony Giverny made famous by Claude Monet. Frieseke was deeply influenced by the work of James Abbott McNeill Whistler and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, evidenced in his own painting style characterized by a consideration of color and pattern, broken brushwork, and decorative elements. A number of his works were painted en plein air, and feature the garden of his house in Giverny. Female figures, flowers, and domestic interiors and exteriors were the recurring images of his paintings.
