Born in Lebanon, New Hampshire, in 1881, Frederick A. Bosley entered the Museum School in 1900 and quickly became a star pupil. Under the influence of teachers Frank Benson and Edmund Tarbell, Bosley combined solid drawing with impressionist brushwork and color. He won the Sears Prize in 1904 and the prestigious Paige Traveling Fellowship in 1907, which enabled him to study in Europe for two years.
