Emile Gruppe Studio

From my Septembers 2012  Cape Ann Plein Air class ... we visited the Gruppe studio on Rocky Neck.
Here, the gracious Jennifer Gruppe reveled the class with stories of Emile and her husband Robert- the legacy of the Gruppe painting family.It's quite thrilling to see the work and studio of Emile Gruppe, a legend of the Cape Ann School , and then to realize that it's  Robert Gruppe's paintings that are drawing you in. They say real genius emerges in the third generation painter and this is confirmation of this.The mastery of color and bravura technique evokes the work of Sorolla.
