Born in San Gabriel, on his father’s ranch, Rose studied at the California School of Design (now San Francisco Art Institute). He left for Paris in 1888, and soon joined the international artist colony in Giverny, home of Claude Monet. When Rose returned to California several years later in 1914, he was drawn to the scenery of La Jolla, Laguna Beach, and Carmel, painting the sun drenched vistas in a vigorous and loose impressionistic style. Rose’s experience in France and his passion for the local scenery made him a central figure in the movement of California Impressionism.

Born in San Gabriel, California on his father’s ranch, Guy Rose graduated from Los Angeles High School and studied at the California School of Design (now San Francisco Art Institute). Inspired by his teacher, the painter Emil Carlsen (whose work is also included in this exhibition), Rose left for Paris, France in 1888. In 1890 he made his first trip to the international artist colony of Giverny, now best known as the home of the Impressionist painter Claude Monet. In 1904 Rose bought a house in Giverny, where he lived until 1912. He returned to California in 1914, where he created many paintings of popular locations such as La Jolla, Laguna Beach, and Carmel, California. Rose’s experience in Giverny and his own rigorous technique made him a central figure in the movement of California Impressionism. His painting Late Afternoon, Giverny (also included in this exhibition) is a testament to the great influence of French Impressionism in the United States and, specifically, in California.
