EMILE GRUPPE: Painting

History: Emile Gruppe’s Paintings

He was the son of landscape artist Charles Paul Gruppe, and was born in 1896 in Rochester, New York.  Gruppe spent much of his youth studying art under his father, and returning to the United States at the onset of World War I.  He studied painting at the National Academy in New York and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, France. Gruppe eventually moved to Gloucester, MA, where he remained until his death in 1978.

An American painter, he became well known for his landscape and maritime port scenes. His modern style was largely inherited from French Impressionist/Post Impressionist style of artists Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne and Paul Gauguin. “Lily Pads,” date and location unknown, one of Gruppe’s landscapes, attests to Monets influence and is similar to some of the paintings in Monet’s “Water Lily” series.
