THE GIRL IN BLUE

 

 

 

Frederick Carl Frieseke, Girl in Blue Arranging Flowers, c. 1915, oil on canvas, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX

A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life, for it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that true joy can be found.

Bertrand Russell*

American artist Frederick Carl Frieseke (1874-1939) is sometimes identified as a painter of Decorative Impressionism, a late phase of the movement mainly centered in Monet’s home town of Giverny.  Multi-talented British thinker Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) was an influential philosopher, mathematician, writer, anti-war activist as well as Nobel prize winner.
