Mount Ben Lowman (Ogden, Utah) by Emile A. Gruppé


Emile Albert Gruppé (American, 1896 - 1978) was born in Rochester, New York and became a renowned New England landscape and marine painter. Although he is best known for his variety of Impressionistic landscapes, he also painted figures and portraits. His modern style was largely inherited from French Impressionist Claude Monet. "Lily Pads," one of Gruppé's landscapes, attests to Monet's influence and is similar to some of the paintings in Monet's "Water Lily" series.

He was the son of landscape artist, Charles Paul Gruppé, and was educated in art at The Hague in the Netherlands, and in New York City at the National Academy of Design at The Arts Students League. He also received instruction from artists George Bridgeman, Charles Chapman, Richard Miller and John F. Carlson, with whom he would later founded, in 1942, the Gruppé Summer School in Gloucester, Massachusetts. He made his permanent studio in Gloucester.
