"The publication of Guy Rose: American Impressionist marks the rediscovery of an American master of the Imressionist style of painting after more than half a century of virtual neglect...Illustrated by dozens of paintings, most of them never before published, this book reveals Guy Roses's mastery of serveral styles in a variety of subjects, from early still lifes to intimate figure studies, from picturesque scenes of the French countryside to spectatular views of California's Pacific coast at Laguna Beach and Carmel/Monterey.
