Comentarios: Primarily a Tonalist landscape and marine painter, Gruppe lived in the Netherlands for over 20 years and is closely identified with the Dutch School of painting. His subject matter and soft-colored palette show the dark tonal qualities of the Netherland painters, and as an American, he received the unusual honor to be elected to the Pulchre Studio. Father of Emile Gruppe (see entry).
