This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in New York City, George Henry Bogert (often confused with George Hirst Bogert 1864-1923) became known for landscapes, seascapes of Venice and urban subjects and is especially aligned with the style of Tonalism* and the Barbizon School* of painting.  In his signature work, he used "cool blue tones to achieve blurred form and soft half-light effects, further accentuated by the application of dense impasto." (Zellman 385). Much of this work seemed related to the popular turn-of-the-century soft focus photography.

In the early 1880s, he studied at the National Academy of Design* and then went to Paris where his teachers were Puvis de Chavannes, Raphael Collin and Aime Morot.
From 1884 to 1888, he spent four years in Europe, primarily in Paris with teachers including Puvis de Chavannes and Aime Morot.  Returning to the United States, he was in New York as a student of Thomas Eakins.

In the 1890s, he returned to Europe where he traveled widely for subject matter including to Venice and the Isle of Wight.  In Northern France, he came under the influence of Eugene Boudin and his plein-air landscape painting methods.

Bogert received numerous awards including the First Hallgarten Prize by the National Academy of Design in 1899 to which he was elected to membership that year.

Little is known of him after 1900, except that he returned to Europe and finally settled at the artists' colony of Old Lyme, Connecticut*.
