Artist and Model

Frederick Carl Frieseke (American, 1874-1939) – Artist and Model (Oil on canvas) – Unlike the earlier artists in Giverny, Frieseke’s Impressionism was an unreal construct, his sunlight and color entirely synthetic; one modern writer has noted that “His light hardly seems to be plein air light at all. In fact it seems entirely artificial … a stunning concoction of blues and magentas frosted with early summer green and flecks of white.”
