(Picton, Canada, 1860 - 1940, New York City, New York)
Charles Gruppe is a landscape and marine painter. He was born in Picton, Canada in 1860. Largely self-taught, Gruppe did study in Holland. This shows in a majority of his works, many of which are set in Holland. He should not be confused with his son, Emile Gruppe, who became a known painter for his New England Scenes.
