In the Library

Frederick Carl Frieseke (American, 1874-1939) – In the Library, c.1917 (Oil on canvas. Hood Museum of Art – Dartmouth College) – Frieseke’s early figures most clearly show his academic training and draughtsmanship. Gradually these evolve into the most common images of the next decade, comprised of loosely-applied blotches of bright color. The vast majority of these show their subjects in the garden. Others include models in colorful, light-filled interiors.
