About the Artwork

Frederick Carl Frieseke, The Kitchen Door, 1911. Oil on canvas, 32 1/8 × 25 7/8 in. (81.5 × 65.5 cm). Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Promised gift of Bernard and Barbro Osher

As member of the “last generation” of American painters working in the French village of Giverny, Frederick Carl Frieseke remained in the Impressionist artists’ colony until 1918. He and his wife, Sadie, stayed at Le Hameau, a farmhouse adjacent to the home of Claude Monet. Like Monet, Frieseke’s garden provided subjects for his paintings. Sadie maintained the garden, which Frieseke used as an outdoor studio, posing his models among the climbing vines, manicured trees, and lush flower beds.

The Kitchen Door visually connects the Friesekes’ garden to the farmhouse interior. A woman carries a basket of apples across the threshold, into the darkened kitchen—a space depicted as a private retreat where nature’s bounty can be enjoyed.
