World War I was threatening to break out and in 1912 Guy Rose and his wife returned to the United States and they opened an art school in Narragansett, Rhode Island. The artist had repeated bouts of illness from lead poisoning and this was attributed to the shooting accident when he was nine. Certain paints and pigments seemed to trigger the illness and in 1914 he once again became sick. About this time the couple made the decision to move to a warmer climate and they moved to Los Angeles, California.
In California, Guy Rose held the position of Director at the Stickney Memorial School of Art. He also continued to create his own paintings while he held that position. In 1921 Guy Rose suffered a stroke that left him paralyzed. The artist had spent most of his life creating paintings that were inspired by his surroundings but the paralysis ended his painting career. While in France and California the artist created numerous figural paintings and landscapes for which he is well known.
Guy Rose died in Pasadena, California in November of 1925.
