Premier American Impressionist Frederick Carl Frieseke settled in the French village of Giverny, forty miles northwest of Paris, shortly after 1900. Frieseke was the leading figure among the second generation of Americans in Giverny, which included painters Richard E. Miller, Louis Ritman, Lawton Parker, and Edmund Greacen.

Frieseke’s interpretation of Impressionism incorporated brilliant effects of sun and light in outdoor settings, and complex, richly patterned interiors that recall the intimisme of Pierre Bonnard. Frieseke’s work enjoyed critical attention throughout his career; Frieseke exhibited extensively, both in the United States and in his adopted France.

Documenting the artist’s innovative vision, the catalogue raisonné will be the authoritative reference work on Frieseke.

The Catalogue Raisonné project, in progress, is grateful for additional information regarding Frieseke’s life, works, and career. Please contact Debra Pesci, Project Liaison, at Hollis Taggart Galleries by phone, 212-628-4000, or email
