Frederick Carl Frieseke was an American Impressionist painter who spent most of his life as an expatriate in France. An influential member of the Giverny art colony, his paintings often concentrated on various effects of dappled sunlight. He is especially known for painting female subjects, both indoors and out.

Frederick's aunt recounted how, unlike most boys, he was interested in the arts more than in sports. His grandmother, Valetta Gould Graham, enjoyed painting, and encouraged Frederick in his artistic pursuits. An 1893 visit to the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago also stimulated his desire to become an artist.

Frieseke began his artistic training at the Art Institute of Chicago, studying with Frederick Warren Freer and John Vanderpoel. After moving to New York in 1895, he resumed his art education at the Art Students League in 1897.

He worked as an illustrator, selling cartoons he had drawn to The New York Times, Puck, and Truth. He claimed that he might have curtailed his art education if he had been more successful in that endeavor.

The following year, he moved to France, where he would remain, except for short visits to the United States and elsewhere. He did continue his education, enrolling at the Academie Julian in Paris, studying under Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant and Jean-Paul Laurens, and receiving criticism from Auguste-Joseph Delecluse. His studies also included some time at Academie Carmen under James Abbott McNeill Whistler.

Whistler's influence is evident in Frieseke's early mature paintings, with close tonalities.

In the summer of 1905, he spent at least a month in the Giverny art colony.

The Friesekes' Giverny home and the garden they created there were often featured in his paintings, and his wife would frequently pose for him.[10] He also kept another studio nearby on the Epte river. Many of his outdoor nudes were painted there.

Frieseke's artistic influence was greatly felt among the Americans in Giverny, most of whom shared his Midwestern background and had also begun their art studies in Chicago. Among those artists were Louis Ritman, Karl Anderson, Lawton Parker, and Karl Buehr.

Frieseke had established a superb reputation during his career.
