Description
Louis Ritman (American, 1889-1963) "In Frieseke's Garden, Giverny," c. 1916, oil on canvas, 32" x 25", signed lower right, framed Provenance: Private Collection, Missouri Louis Ritman was primarily a Chicago painter but like many other American painters, traveled to Paris to paint in 1910. He met Frederick Frieseke, a well known American impressionist painter in a Paris cafe in 1911. Frieseke had purchased Theodore Robinson's home in Giverny, next door to the home of French impressionist painter, Claude Monet, and invited Ritman to come to Giverny and paint the beautiful flower gardens surrounding the home. Ritman accepted the invitation and executed a series of paintings of Frieseke's flower garden, which were to become his most sought after works. This painting was most likely completed in the summer of 1916.
