フレデリック・カール・フリーゼケ (1874-1939)

 
Frederick Frieseke is often regarded as the finest American Impressionist painter of the figure. Yet when he came to study at Académie Juilian in 1898, several les Nabis painters remained a lingering presence, and it was the rich, decorative patterns of Edouard Vuillard and Pierre Bonnard that served as the blueprint for his early success. That influence is clearly demonstrated in the unrestrained repetition of the voluminous, pleated, striped umbrellas of Afternoon at the Beach, a canvas mural installed in the opulent Hotel Shelburne dining room overlooking the Atlantic City Boardwalk. The unifying impact of that repetitive element imbues the setting with cloud-like loft within a color scheme, evoking Vuillard and the richness of a Gobelin tapestry, rather than the effect of sunlight and broken color that mark his more familiar paintings from the decade of 1910 to 1920.<br><br>Afternoon at the Beach was installed under the artist’s direction in February 1906. It remained on view for decades at the swanky hotel that enticed “Diamond Jim” James Buchanan Brady to pay one thousand dollars a week for permanent residence and was an unfading memory for throngs of well-heeled socialites, financiers, and notables from Irving Berlin to John Philip Sousa and Ethel Barrymore to Al Jolson. Undoubtedly, its presence high on the grand dining room wall contributed to the artist’s popularity and renown.<br><br>Today, we may look upon this long, frieze-like composition as a delightful fin-de-siécle costume study or an informative expose of Victorian mores as suggested by the separate spheres of gender groupings. But mostly, Afternoon at the Beachrecounts the artist’s unbridled delight and appreciation of women, here, expressed within familial, maternal, and social contexts. It is the subject and theme that brought Frieseke acclaim and awards on both sides of the Atlantic and which, to this day, endears him to the many who count him among the most beloved of American figurative painters.

「私が最も関心を寄せているのは、太陽の光である。それを見たままに再現できれば、私は満足だ。- フレデリック・フリースケ

歴史

フレデリック・フリースケは、アメリカ印象派の最も優れた人物画家と評価されている。しかし、彼がアカデミー・ジュリアンに入学した1898年当時、レ・ナビの画家たちはまだその余韻を残しており、エドゥアール・ヴュイヤールやピエール・ボナールの豊かで装飾的な模様は、彼の初期の成功への青写真となった。アトランティックシティのボードウォークを見下ろす豪華なホテル・シェルバーンのダイニングルームに設置されたキャンバスの壁画「Afternoon at the Beach」では、ボリューム感のあるプリーツとストライプの傘が自由自在に繰り返され、その影響ははっきりと表れている。この反復的な要素の統一的なインパクトは、1910年から1920年の10年間に描かれた、より親しまれている絵画に見られる太陽光や色彩の崩壊の効果ではなく、ヴュイヤールやゴブラン織りの豊かさを思わせる色彩の中に雲のようにロフトがある舞台を吹き込んでいるのである。

海辺の午後」は、1906年2月に画家の指示のもとに設置された。この作品は、「ダイヤモンド・ジム」ことジェームズ・ブキャナン・ブレイディが週1,000ドルを払って永住するように誘ったこの高級ホテルで何十年も展示され、アーヴィング・バーリン、ジョン・フィリップ・スーザ、エセル・バリモア、アル・ジョルソンといった裕福な社会人、金融家、著名人が多く訪れた思い出として色あせない存在となったのである。大食堂の壁の高いところに飾られていたことが、この画家の人気と名声に貢献したことは間違いない。

今日、私たちはこの長いフリーズのような構図を、世紀末の楽しい衣装研究として、あるいは男女のグループ分けが示唆するヴィクトリア朝の風俗の有益な暴露として見ることができるかもしれない。しかし、「海辺の午後」には、家族、母性、社会的な文脈の中で表現された、女性に対する画家の抑えがたい喜びと感謝の気持ちが込められている。このテーマは、大西洋の両岸で賞賛と賞をもたらし、今日に至るまで、アメリカの具象画家の中で最も愛されている画家の一人に数えられる多くの人々に愛されています。
