The Harbor at Honfleur

Frank Myers Boggs

American Art

In The Harbor at Honfleur, Frank Meyers Boggs skillfully distills the effects of natural light on water and moving forms. By 1876 the Brooklyn-trained landscape painter had settled in Paris, and he became a French citizen in 1923. He won the hearts of Parisian critics for his freely executed paintings and watercolors of architectural cityscapes and harbors such as that of the northern French coastal town of Honfleur.
