Frank Boggs was an American artist who trained in Paris and eventually settled there, becoming a French citizen in 1923. "Paris" is typical of Boggs’s street scenes in technique and in the use of a low, street-level vantage point. The artist began with a wood panel, coated with gesso and stained with an umber wash; he then made a faint charcoal drawing and lightly brushed in the oil color. Many similar examples, dating from the 1880s onward, attest to Boggs’s consistent style and subject matter.
