American impressionist painter Frederick Carl Frieseke lived and worked in France, where he was an important member of the Giverny art colony. His paintings focused on the effects of dappled sunlight and the changing mood of a scene. Many of his works feature female subjects, whether they are posing in the studio or enjoying a cup of tea outdoors. His style was influenced by the art of the day and was popular amongst many Impressionist painters.

During the early twenties, Frieseke's popularity declined. While his paintings continued to receive prizes and collections, his sales declined. His work was considered outdated by critics, who saw him as an artist who painted pretty women. His work gradually shifted to a more contemplative and somber style, with a more restrained palette and restrained surface patterns. During this period, Frieseke's work grew in popularity and received several awards.

In 1903, Frieseke started exhibiting his works internationally and in the United States. In the Venice Biennale in 1909, he had his first solo exhibition. In 1920, he moved to Le Mesnil-sur-Blangy in Normandy, where he worked in the same house as Monet and his wife. His work became darker and more somber. The artist remained in France for the rest of his life, and his daughter remained a constant source of inspiration.
