Frederick A. BOSLEY (1881-1942) ✿

Frederick A. Bosley (1881-1942) 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. After his return, he married Emily Sohier and taught painting at the Abbott Academy in Andover and at the Groton School. In 1909, the young couple settled into a rented home in Lincoln, and began their family with Edward, Elizabeth and Ermingarde, who, sadly, died young. Called Cherry Croft, the home offered a respite from the commotion of city life and is where the Bosley family spent the next thirteen years, though he maintained a studio in Boston at the famed Fenway Studio building.
