Frederick Carl Frieseke was born in Michigan and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, but eventually settled in Giverny. Although based in Monet's hometown, he was more influenced by Renoir. He primarily dealt in figure painting, particularly female figures. He delighted in playing with pattern and was adventurous with color, as you can see in the painting below with its contrasting but complementary mixing of patterns on the drapes, crib, and the woman's dress. Many Impressionists were inspired by Japanese prints, and mimicked their flat, pattern-on-pattern effect, and we can see their influence often in Frieseke's work.
