Frank Myers Boggs moved from Springfield, Ohio to live in New York City at an early age. His dad worked in the publishing business, and through this association, he landed his initial position at Harper's magazine as a wood engraver when he was only seventeen. His desire developed past the world of illustrating, and after four years he went to Paris to seek a profession in stage design. In any case, finding no reasonable apprenticeships, he enlisted in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and started studying painting under the acclaimed Jean-Léon Gérôme.

At the point when Frank Myers Boggs came back to America following his two years abroad, he experienced a fairly threatening environment: more seasoned individuals from the National Academy of Design were unwilling to acknowledge the advanced styles grasped by numerous youthful American artists coming back from studies in Europe. Thusly Frank Myers Boggs returned to Paris in 1880 and started to show his oil paintings at the Paris Salon. They were generally welcomed and soon pulled in the positive reviews of critics. He became into a French national in 1923, and in spite of the fact that he lived and worked principally in France, he kept on advancing himself in the United States, submitting work to exhibitions and winning prizes in Boston, Philadelphia, New York, and Chicago.

Boggs' profound love of France is apparent in each of his unmistakable paintings of its streets, ports, and landmarks. A habitual painter of the unpretentious grays of Parisian street life, Boggs utilized this canvas as a chance to enjoy lively colors, and solid, clear light. He also really caught the mood of the Mediterranean ports in his many seascapes.
