Rose, Guy Orlando

In 1876 when Guy Orlando Rose was nine years old, he was accidentally shot in the face during a hunting trip with his brothers and while recuperating in the hospital, with nothing to do, he began to sketch and paint. In 1884 he moved to San Francisco to study with the Danish-born artist Emil Carlsen, at the California School of Design.

Guy Orlando Rose traveled to Paris in 1888 and enrolled at the Académie Julian, studying with Benjamin-Constant, Jules Lefebvre, Lucien Doucet and Jean-Paul Laurens. He met fellow students Frank Vincent and Frederick Melville at the Académie Julian, Vincent and Rose would remain lifelong friends. In 1889, Rose won a scholarship to the Academie Delacluse.

Guy Orlando Rose lived and worked in New York City in the 1890s, illustrating for Harper's, Scribners, and Century magazines. He and his wife returned to France in 1899 and bought a cottage at Giverny, but the following year they moved to Paris but wintered in Briska, Algeria. From 1904 to 1912 they moved and lived in their cottage in Giverny. Claude Monet, who lived there became his friend and mentor and Rose's artwork from this period shows the influence of Monet. Guy Rose exhibited his Impressionist paintings at the Paris Salons of 1890-1891, 1894, 1900, and 1909.

In 1913-1914 the Roses summered in and held an outdoor sketching school at Narragansett, Rhode Island, but at the end of the school season, suffering on and off again from the effects of lead poisoning, Guy Orlando Rose and his wife moved permanently to Los Angeles. In the San Gabriel Valley, California, the town of Rosemead bears the family name. Guy's father Leonard John Rose had a big ranch named "Rose's Meadow" which was one day shortened to Rosemeade and gave the city its name. Rosemeade was once again shortened finally to Rosemead.
