Frank William Boggs (Frank Will): 1900 - 1951.

French and American painter and Watercolorist. Franck Will was born in Nanterre (a city close to Paris) on March 13th, 1900, and died in Clichy (another town close to Paris) on December 29h, 1950.
Frank Will was the pseudonym of the artist Frank William Boggs, who was the son and pupil of the well-known American Impressionist artist Frank Myer Boggs.

Frank Will trained under his father before training as an architect but later gave up his studies to become a full-time artist. He was well known amongst the colony of artists at Montmartre and mainly associated with the artists Gen-Paul and Leprin. In 1922 he made his first visit to the Normandy coast. With Leprin he visited Moret-sur-Loing, Auxerre, and Avalon.

In 1943 he exhibited « La Chignole » at the event created by Gen-Paul. He is principally known for his Parisian watercolors. Although his style is more intense, he painted the same subjects as his father, whose works had enjoyed much popular appeal. From 1929 his work was on permanent exhibition at the Galerie Georges Petit in Paris. His style was a blend of popularist Post Impressionism, typical of the artists of Montmartre, with flashes of bold Expressionism. He also exhibited regularly at Hector Brame Galleries, who was his father’s dealer, and later, he was under contract to the art dealer Henri Bureau.
