RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 45393624 LA English T1 Frederick Carl Frieseke : the evolution of an American impressionist A1 Frieseke, Frederick C., Kilmer, Nicholas., McWhorter, Linda., Telfair Museum of Art., PB Telfair Museum of Art ; Princeton University Press PP Savannah, GA; Princeton, N.J. YR 2001 SN 0691089221 9780691089225 AB "The color-drenched gardens and sun-dappled nudes by Frederick Carl Frieseke (1874-1939) have long been loved by admirers of American Impressionism, and his paintings are treasured in museum collections across the country. This volume - with more than one hundred color and almost eighty black-and-white plates - is the first ever devoted to his work. It is being published in conjunction with the artist's first retrospective." "A biographical overview and a detailed chronology by the artist's grandson, including vintage photographs, provide much new information and correct several misconceptions about Frieseke's life and career. Three essays by leading scholars discuss the diverse stages of his work and place it in art historical context, detailing his experience as a student at Whistler's atelier in Paris and as a central member of the group of American expatriates who settled in Giverny, France, near the French master Monet. The book casts new light on Frieseke, American Impressionism, and the art world at the turn of the last century."--Jacket.
