Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
Joseph H. Boston, a painter noted for society portraits as well as landscape and genre scenes.  He was born in 1860 in Bridgeport, Connecticut and spent much of his career in New York where he was a member of the National Academy of Design, Salmagundi Club, Allied Artists of America and the National Arts Club.  He was an instructor at the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences and did much painting in the Hudson River Valley and Adirondack Mountains..

His early art training was at the National Academy of Design School, which he attended for five semesters.  He first exhibited there in 1884, and his work was represented in 58 of the Academy's exhibitions. 

Boston won a bronze medal at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo in 1901.  In Brooklyn in 1902-03, he joined with William S. Barrett and other artists in the group called "The Brooklyn Ten", later called "The Society of Brooklyn Painters".  These painters developed the Brooklyn New School of Art.
