Frederick Carl Frieseke: Under the Awning (1916)

“Frieseke’s celebrated Giverny subjects of women in domestic interiors, or, such as in the present example, enjoying moments of leisure in the village’s opulent gardens, are imbued with a remarkable sense of light and high-keyed palette adopted from the French Impressionists.
