About The Artist

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Rochester, New York, Emile Gruppe 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," date and location unknown, one of Gruppes landscapes, attests to Monets influence and is similar to some of the paintings in Monets "Water Lily" series. 

He was the son of landscape artist Charles Paul Gruppe, and was born in 1896 in Rochester, New York. He had a very strong art background. In addition to being raised by an artistic father, he was also educated in art at The Hague in the Netherlands and in New York City at the National Academy of Design and 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 Gruppe Summer School in Gloucester, Massachusetts. He made his permanent studio in Gloucester.

His artistic career had begun in 1915, but was briefly interrupted in 1917 when he spent a year in the United States Navy. 

Gruppes prolific career brought him many awards and memberships. His popular painting "Winter, Vermont," date and location unknown, won the Richard Mitton Award at the Jordan Marsh Exhibition in Boston in 1843.
Biography from Michael A. Latragna Fine Art:

Emile Albert Gruppe, (1896-1978)

Emile Albert Gruppe was born in Rochester, New York in 1896.  The son of Charles Paul Gruppe who was recognized by the Dutch as being one of America's most gifted painters of the late 19th Century.  Emile was trained by his father and studied at the National Academy in New York City and the Carnegie Art School.  He studied under Charles Webster Hawthorne, John F. Carlson and George Chapman. 

Gruppe was gifted in his ability to paint almost any subject whether a landscape, harbor scene or the human figure ( mostly nudes).  He was able to produce a large painting (30 x 36 inches) in a matter of hours.  I bought one such landscapes from a local artist in Rochester who said he spent the afternoon with Gruppe in his studio and watched him complete the painting.  After painting it, Emile gave him the painting. That was late in his career, he was able to turn out a huge volume of work and certainly had a great following for his paintings.  He was so prolific, I believe he produced thousands of paintings, as a dealer I have sold in my 30 plus years of art dealing hundreds of his paintings.  I tend to like his earlier works from the late teens to the early 1950's.  However, it is my experience that his works from all periods are appreciated and sought after. 

I believe his largest component of success is the use of color and heavy brushwork producing wonderful impressionistic paintings, this is what I hear from collectors and other dealers.  He used bold colors, with heavy impasto, his paintings for the most part are up-lifting and happy.  Needless to say he was a master of all moods and atmosphere.  He enjoyed what he was doing, the more he painted the easier it became. 

He was a member of many art organizations including the Salmagundi Club, The Rochester Art Association, Grand Central Art Galleries, North Shore Art Association and many more.  His works are in many museums and private collections.  As you can see by his paintings of Lily Pads he was like so many artists influenced by Claude Monet.  His early nudes also demonstrate a French Style of painting.  His paintings ranged from New England to Florida and even a few show up from Utah. As well as being the gifted painter he was he was a teacher of art and he produced three books: Gruppe on Painting, Gruppe on Color, & Brushwork
