Abstract

An article on American Impressionist artist and native Portlander Walter Griffin (1861-1935), who lived in Stroudwater in a house and studio now occupied by the painter John Swan. Taking Claude Monet's garden in Giverny, France, as a model, Griffin created a secluded world of water lilies behind his home, which is now a 203-year-old culturally historic site. He painted a scene from his studio similar in many respects to the one Monet looked out on.
