Frank Boggs Paintings

Frank Boggs was a pupil of Jean-Léon Gérôme at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His generally small drawings are spontaneous and lively, while his many watercolours, which form an important part of his work, are highly nuanced. A lover of Paris, he painted its many views - quays, buildings and the banks of the Seine - as well as French and foreign ports, the lively markets of small towns in La Rochelle, the Netherlands, Belgium and Venice, in pictures with an identifiable style that were attractive to the public. Between 1906 and 1907, he also made etchings.


Frank Boggs exhibited until the end of his life at the Salon des Artistes Français, where he received several distinctions, including being placed out-of-competition, and was awarded a silver medal at the Exposition Universelle of 1998. In 1885, he exhibited Rough Sea in Honfleur in New York, which won him a prize of 2,500 dollars.
