This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in San Gabriel, California, Guy Rose became one of California's premier impressionist painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and was also a leading figure in the California regionalist movement.

He was the son of a large Southern California landowning family, and the town of Rosemead bears the family name. He graduated from Los Angeles High School and moved to San Francisco where he did his art training at the School of Design with Virgil Williams and Emil Carlsen.

In 1888, he went to Paris and studied with Benjamin Constant, Jules Lefebvre, and at the Academie Julian with Lucien Doucet. In 1898, he received honorable mention at the Paris Salon, the first artist from California to get such recognition. Some of the work he did in his Paris studio had Oriental motifs, reflecting the fascination of the time with that subject matter.

In the mid 1890s, he went to New York and taught at the Pratt Institute and did illustrations for "Harper's," "Scribners," and "Century," and in 1899, returned to France, and he and his wife bought a cottage at Giverny, where he became greatly influenced by Monet and the other Impressionists during the time he lived there from 1904 to 1912. Unlike many of the artists in residence there, he actually became a friend of Monet, who was a mentor. He also had problems with lead poisoning from paint and had periods of time when he was unable to paint.

In 1914, having lived eight years at Giverny, he moved permanently to California and taught and served as Director of the Stickney School of Art in Pasadena. Six years later, he had more lead poisoning and suffered a stroke that left him paralyzed. He died on November 17, 1925.

He was a member of the California Art Club and Painters and Sculptors of Los Angeles. His work is in numerous collections including the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana; the Los Angeles County Museum; and the Fleischer Museum in Scottsdale, Arizona.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Guy Rose was born in San Gabriel, California on March 3,1867. He was the son of a former senator who was a large Southern California landowner and rancher for whom the town of Rosemead was named. Guy graduated from Los Angeles High School; next he studied at the California School of Design in San Francisco, where he was particularly influenced by Emil Carlsen. At the age of twenty-one he sailed to Paris to study at the Academie Julian. His big claim to fame was his friendship with Claude Monet during a prolonged sojourn in the village of Giverny, near Paris. He traveled between France and Los Angeles many times, suffered a battle with lead poisoning ( an occupational hazard), and taught for a while in New York City at the Pratt Institute; finally he bought a house in Giverny in 1904.

The lead poisoning he suffered from affected his vision and crippled his hands, leaving him unable to paint for various periods of time. In 1914, Rose returned to California and brought with him the light and colors of French Impressionism. He roamed up and down the state of California painting the landscapes in a style somewhat related. He taught at the Stickney School of Art and served as director there. In 1920 he again suffered from lead poisoning and in 1921 he suffered a stroke that left him paralyzed. He died on November 17, 1925.

Biography from Lawrence Beebe Fine Art:
Guy Orlando Rose was born March 3,1867 in San Gabriel, California. He was the seventh child of Leonard John Rose and Amanda Jones Rose. He has become recognized as one of California's top impressionist painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

He was the son of a prominent California senator and was raised on a large Southern California ranch and vineyard -- the town of Rosemead bears the family name. In 1876 he was accidentally shot in the face during a hunting trip with his brothers. While recuperating he began to sketch and use watercolors and oil paints. He graduated from Los Angeles High School in 1884 and moved to San Francisco where he did his art training at the California School of Design.

In September 12, 1888, Rose enrolled at the Academie Julian in Paris and studied with Benjamin-Constant, Jules Lefebvre, Lucien Doucet and Jean-Paul Laurens while in Paris. In 1888-89, he won a scholarship at the Academie Delacluse. He met fellow students Frank Vincent and Frederick Melville at the Academie Julian -- Frank Vincent and Guy Rose were to remain lifelong friends.

Rose lived New York, New York in the 1890s and illustrated for "Harper's," "Scribners," and "Century".

Returning to France in 1899, he and his wife Ethel Rose bought a cottage at Giverny. In 1900 he resided in Paris and spent the winter in Briska, Algeria where he painted three known paintings. From 1904 to 1912 husband and wife lived in Giverny and his works from this period show the influence of "the master" Monet, who became his friend and mentor.

In 1913-1914 the Roses summered in and held an outdoor sketching school at Narragansett, Rhode Island. Suffering on and off again from the effects of lead poisoning, Rose and his wife moved permanently to Los Angeles, California in 1914.

In Los Angeles, Guy Rose taught and served as Director of the Stickney Memorial School of Art in Pasadena. In 1921 he suffered a debilitating stroke that left him paralyzed. Guy Rose died in Pasadena, California on November 17, 1925. In 1926 the Stendahl Gallery held a memorial exhibition of his works.

Rose won the Gold Medal at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 and the Gold Medal at the Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, 1915. His works can be found in the following public collections: Bowers Museum, Santa Ana; Cleveland Museum; Laguna Beach Museum of Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Oakland Museum, California; Pasadena Art Institute.

Biography from The Redfern Gallery:
A native Californian, Guy Rose was born in San Gabriel, CA on March 3, 1867. He was the son of a former senator who was a large Southern California landholder and rancher (the town of Rosemead and the boulevard bearing that name are in honor of the Rose family).

After graduating from Los Angeles High School, he moved to San Francisco where he began his art training at the School of Design under Virgil Williams and Emil Carlsen. In 1888 he further studied in Paris under Constant, Lefebvre and Doucet at Academie Julian.

Returning to New York City in the mid-1890’s, Rose worked at Harper’s, Scribner’s and Century. In 1899, he was back in France where he bought a cottage in Giverny, and it was there that he was greatly influenced by Claude Monet and the French Impressionists.
