Lot Essay

In efforts to break away from the constraints of illustrating, Frost rented a house in Giverny in 1908 as well as the following two summers, to establish himself more as pure painter. Despite Frost's colorblindess, the present work and lots 123 and 126, reflect his investigation into Impressionist characteristics of light and color.
