Charles Paul Gruppé was born in Canada and relocated to Rochester, New York as a child. He was largely a self-taught artist, and during his young adulthood he moved to Europe to formally pursue his love of art. He remained in Holland for over two decades where he painted with the Hague School and became known for his Dutch landscape scenes. The artist eventually moved back to America at the dawn of World War I with his family, taking an apartment studio at New York’s famed Carnegie Hall. He would spend his later years painting scenes of Cape Ann, Massachusetts with his son, painter Emile A. Gruppé.
