American born artist Frank Howland was known for his portrait and genre paintings during the mid-19thcentury. While details of his life are scarce, Howland traveled to Paris in 1858 with fellow artists John Gardner Low and Charles Caryl Colman to study with the French history painter Thomas Couture (1815-1879) and Barbizon painter Constant Tryon (1810-1865). Howland remained in Paris for the next 6 years.
