Guy Rose was born 3rd March 1867 in San Gabriel,
California to Mary and Leonard Rose, a prominent California senator. His
was a large and wealthy family. During recuperation from a shooting
accident, Guy Rose killed time by taking up sketching a watercolours. His
natural talent sprang into view and so on leaving the Los Angeles High
School at age 17 he took up studies at the California School of Design. In
1888 he graduated to the Acedémie St. Julien, Paris, France.
On completing his studies he moved to New York initially finding work
illustrating various national magazines. He returned to France in 1899
where he and his wife purchased a cottage at Giverny. Contact and
influences with the thriving art scene at Giverny (including Claude Monet)
is to be seen in all his paintings thereafter - their profoundly French
style is clearly seen above.
Guy and his wife returned to the USA in 1913, firstly living and working
in Long Island, but moving back to California in 1914 where he took up a
teaching directorship at the Stickeny Memorial School of Art at Pasadena.
He suffered a serious stroke in 1921 that left him unable to work. He died
17th November 1925.
