Join Curatorial Fellow Jean Stern as he discusses the Life and Art of Guy Rose (1867-1925) with a slide-illustrated lecture on California’s most important Impressionist painter. Born in San Gabriel, he first studied art in San Francisco and in 1888 went to Paris. He was an exceptional student who won every award the school offered, a singular honor for an American art student.
He greatly admired the work of Claude Monet (1840-1926) and in 1904, Rose and his wife Ethel settled in Giverny, becoming members of the small American art colony there. Although Rose did not paint with Monet, they became good friends and often socialized together. Rose returned to the United States and settled in Pasadena in 1914. In 1921, he was disabled by a stroke that left him partially paralyzed and unable to paint. Four years later, Guy Rose died on November 17, 1925, in Pasadena, California.
The lecture will feature archival photographs and show numerous examples of his works. It will last approximately 45 minutes, with time afterwards for questions and answers.
Advance tickets recommended.
