Overview

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 beautiful and comprehensive volume—with more than one hundred color and almost eighty black-and-white plates—is the most ambitious ever devoted to his work. It is being published in conjunction with a major retrospective of the artist's work.

A biographical overview and a detailed chronology by the artist's grandson, including charming vintage photographs, provide much new information and correct several misconceptions about Frieseke's life and career. Three invaluable 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's groundbreaking scholarship casts new light on Frieseke, American Impressionism, and the art world at the turn of the last century.

The contributors are Nicholas Kilmer, guest curator of the exhibition and the artist's grandson; Virginia M. Mecklenburg, senior curator of painting and sculpture at the Smithsonian American Art Museum; David Sellin, art historian and author of American Painters in Brittany and Normandy; and H. Barbara Weinberg, curator of American painting and sculpture at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
American Impressionist Frederick Carl Frieseke is celebrated in this beautiful volume, the first book to be dedicated entirely to his work. Nearly 200 illustrations are accompanied by excellent essays, including a biographical overview of Frieseke's life and career. The color reproductions faithfully present the lush pastel tones of Frieseke's vibrant oil paintings, and the numerous black and white sketches included in the collection highlight the artist's strong compositions. The book contains works from the three distinct periods in Frieseke's career, providing a well-balanced view of the artist's evolution, a theme also reflected in the essays.
Choice
[This book] far exceeds any previous catalog of Frieseke's work. . . . The volume will be required reading for anyone studying that period in art history, and not just for those who enjoy the work of Frieseke. Highly ecommended.

Library Journal
This lovely, colorful volume, the first book devoted to Frieseke's work, accompanies a traveling exhibition of the artist's paintings. Nicholas Kilmer, Frieseke's grandson, contributes a biographical narrative that includes many personal letters and archival family photographs, and three noted scholars of American art (Barbara Weinberg, Virginia M. Meklenburg, and David Sellin) address the artist's stylistic tendencies. Their essays move chronologically through Frieseke's career, discussing his style from the period before 1910; his stays in Le Pouldu, Brittany in 1901 and in Giverny in 1905-20; and his last artistic phase, which lasted from the 1920s until his death in 1939. The authors examine the paintings produced at the height of Frieseke's Impressionist phase at Giverny not only in terms of Impressionist effects of color and light but also in relation to the decorative qualities of line, texture, and interlocking figures seen in the Nabis and Art Nouveau styles. They go on to point out the characteristics of Frieseke's lesser-known late paintings, which utilize a new realism, a less sensual line, harder edges, and modern dress. Recommended for all libraries with art book collections. Sandra Rothenberg, Framingham State Coll. Lib., MA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Frieseke - that's 'F R IY1 Z EH0 K AH0'

    phonemes with lexical stress from the CMU Pronoucing Dictionary: F R IY1 Z EH0 K AH0 'Free - zeh - kah' The accent is on the first syllable. Do an internet search on Frieseke, and see how many of his pictures you recognize. It is high time that this painter of well-known images should receive 'name recognition!' The book is over 12' x10', with many half-page and some full-bleed illustrations. The reproductions are magnificent.
