This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Florence M.  Rogers (c.1849 – after 1915)

A painter and illustrator, Florence M. Rogers was born in Florence, Italy. She flourished as an artist from 1877 to 1897 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and possibly in St. John, New Brunswick. Her mediums included oils and watercolors. Her subjects included landscapes, city scenes, harbor scenes and news events. Her style was Realism*. She taught art at the Halifax Ladies College and exhibited with the Ontario Society of Artists* (1877) and with the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts* (1888). She also provided the Canadian Illustrated News with a drawing of the O'Donovan Rossa Riot (Toronto) for the April 13, 1878 issue (p. 229). According to the Canadian Heritage Information Network*, her works are in the permanent collections of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia (Halifax) and the Nova Scotia Museum (Halifax). (1)(2)(3)(4)

Rogers’ work is currently included in the exhibition “On a Path to Learning: Early Nova Scotian Women Artists” showing at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax from July 22, 2012 to January 20, 2013.
 
Footnotes:
(1) Dianne O'Neill the curator of “On a Path to Learning: Early Nova Scotian Women Artists” is the sole source for Roger’s birth place, life dates and the Halifax Ladies College. O’Neill’s sources include McAlpine's Annapolis and King's Counties directory for 1886 – 1887 (1886-87), published by McAlpines, Halifax N.S.; and the 1891 Census Halifax.

(2) The Collector's Dictionary of Canadian Artists at Auction lists both Halifax, Nova Scotia and St. John, New Brunswick as places where Rogers was active, O’Neill only mentions Halifax. O’Neill also mentions Rogers being in Haileybury, Ontario in 1915.

(3) The Collector's Dictionary of Canadian Artists at Auction notes that Rogers exhibited with the OSA “in 1877 – 1897”, however the Centre for Contemporary Canadian Art* database of OSA exhibitions only shows her exhibiting in 1877 – the work exhibited then was titled Sketch from Curry's Wharf.

(4) Canadian Illustrated News was published in Montreal, Quebec by George Desbarats from October 30, 1869 to December 29, 1883 and was notable for its innovative use of half-tone photographs. Source: Library and Archives Canada.
