"Le Vieux Mors" by American artist Frank Myers Boggs (1855-1926). Oil on canvas panel. 14 x 21". Frame Size 25 x 31". Frank Myers Boggs, known as Frank Boggs, born December 6, 1855 in Springfield (Ohio), died August 8, 1926 in Meudon (Hauts-de-Seine), is a French painter and engraver of American origin. Frank Myers Boggs is a student of Jean-Léon Gérôme at the School of Fine Arts in Paris. He exhibited regularly until the end of his life at the Salon of French artists, where he received several distinctions, in particular placed out of competition and silver medal on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition of Paris of 1889. In 1885 in New York, he exhibited La Houle in Honfleur, which won a prize of $ 2,500. His drawings, generally small in size, are spontaneous and spiritual. In 1906-1907, he executed etchings of his favorite subjects. His watercolors, very numerous, with a precise and firm touch, are very nuanced, and form the most important part of his work. He decorated rare ceramic dishes in collaboration with Théodore Deck. In love with Paris, its quays and its monuments2, attached to the banks of the Seine along its course, insatiable admirer of French and foreign ports, he multiplies the views of these sites in solidly built paintings with cloudy skies 1. The lively markets of small towns, bridges, Norman ports, La Rochelle, the Netherlands, Belgium, Venice, are his sources of inspiration that allow him to develop themes and a personal style popular with the general public1. Naturalized French on November 14, 1923, Frank Boggs was buried in Paris in the Père-Lachaise cemetery (44th division), alongside his son, the painter Frank-Will.
