Frederick Carl Frieseke: Japanese Parasol (1913)

“According to Nicholas Kilmer, the present work was painted circa 1913 when the artist spent the winter with his family in Corsica. It was around this time that the burgeoning Giverny Group of American painters had drawn the attention of art critics back in New York. Henry McBride regarded Frieseke and the work of his peers as “on a par with the older and better-known men [of Impressionism]” (as quoted in David Sellin, Frederick Carl Frieseke: The Evolution of an American Impressionist, Savannah, Georgia, 2001, p. 94).”
