Death: Jan. 3, 1919
Covington

Artist. American portrait, genre, figure, and landscape painter and teacher, studied in Cincinnati and in Munich. In 1875, he showed a group of his canvases in Boston, where they created a sensation because of their bold brushwork, rich color, and forceful presentation of personality. He taught for many years in Munich and, after 1889, in Cincinnati. His influence on his contemporaries was great, particularly on William Chase and his followers and on the ashcan school. His 'Whistling Boy' (Cincinnati Art Museum) and 'Old Woman' (Metropolitan Museum) are characteristic of his portrait studies. Husband of artist Elizabeth Lyman Boott.  (bio by: Betty K.)
