Author: Will South
Publication: The Oakland Museum / The Irvine Museum, CA, 1995
This gorgeously designed and illustrated monograph, which includes previously unpublished paintings, presents the life of one of the most intriguing and sympathetic personalities of the California Impressionist school, who also happens to be one of the most important American painters by any standard. Guy Rose was a versatile and accomplished painter who lived in New York, Paris, and California, during a time of much change, and enjoyed success as well as considerable personal tragedy. Though well-traveled, he was a quiet, reclusive man, who loved the outdoors and the solitude he found in nature, an artist who let his work shine for him.
