Impressionist painter Frederick Carl Frieseke (1874-1939) lived in New York and Paris before becoming a leading figure of the second generation of Americans at Giverny, France. Frieseke studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Students League, New York City. He moved to France in 1898 where he lived until his death in 1939.

Loaned materials were returned to the donor after microfilming and are not described in the collection container inventory.
Provenance:
The papers were donated in 2019 by Mary K. McGuigan and John F. McGuigan Jr., art historians and collectors in Milford, Pennsylvania. Material on reels N737 and 2885 were lent for microfilming in 1968 and 1983 by Mrs. Kenton Kilmer (Frances Friseke) and her son Nicholas Kilmer, Frieseke's daughter and grandson.
