american impressionists in giverney

guy rose and frederick carl frieseke, both american impressionists, from california and from michigan, loved the kimono and parasol look women were wearing that year. in fact on the french countryside at giverney, where both lived for many years, both painted frieseke's wife one summer afternoon.

("through the vines," frederick carl frieseke"; on the river," guy rose)
