Born in Rochester, New York, Emile Gruppe became a renowned New England landscape and marine painter. Although he is best known for his variety of Impressionistic landscapes, he also painted figures and portraits. His modern style was largely inherited from French Impressionist Claude Monet. "Lily Pond," date and location unknown, is among Gruppes most admired landscapes. It attests to Monet’s influence — the paintings in Monets "Water Lily" series. 

Emile Albert Gruppe was the son of landscape artist Charles Paul Gruppe. In addition to being raised by an artistic father, he was also educated in art at The Hague in the Netherlands, in New York City at the National Academy, and in Paris at la Grande Chaumiere.

In the early 1930’s Emile found his way to the fishing town of Gloucester, Massachusetts and to the area known as Rocky Neck, one of the oldest artist communities in the US. Here he established his home and The Gloucester School of Painting (1940 – 1970) in an old school house with his mentor John Fabian Carlson.
