This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Frank Girardin was born in Louisville, Kentucky in 1856. He studied art in Cincinnati under Frank Noble and later with Frank Duveneck at the Cincinnati Art Academy. Girardin was known primarily for his landscapes and unique use of color.

He spent the first part of his career in Richmond, Indiana between 1880 and 1910, and was the director of the Richmond Art Association. Eventually Girardin moved to California, living in Los Angeles first, then settling in Redondo Beach in 1920. He died in Redondo Beach in 1945.

Biography from Richmond Art Museum:
Francois (Frank) J. Girardin (Painter) [1856-1945]

Born in Louisville, Kentucky, Frank Girardin began his art instruction in 1870 under Frank Noble and later Frank Duveneck at the Cincinnati Art Academy. A semi-pro baseball player in Cincinnati, he was best known for his beautiful landscapes of both Indiana and California.

An extremely active participant in the development of the Art Association of Richmond and original member of the local Sketch Club, he served on the Board of Directors of Art Association for several years. He was considered ranked next to the late John E. Bundy in talent and skill by the former Art Association Director, Mrs. Ella Bond Johnston. It was during his time in Indiana, that he received the most recognition for his work. In 1903, he won first prize for his painting, "Lingering Snow" at the Cincinnati Art Club Show. This would be one of numerous prizes and awards the he would receive during his time in Indiana, including the coveted Mary T. R. Foulke Prize.

In 1910, Girardin moved to Redondo Beach, California where he continued to paint the local landscape. Although living in Californian, he never forgot his friends in Richmond, continuing to participate in the annual exhibition by Indiana artists. Many California residents referred to him as "The Beech Tree Painter". Indiana public schools and libraries, including the Richmond Community Schools, Morrison-Reeves Library, and the Fayette County Public Library, purchased or acquired works. His paintings are in the San Diego Art Museum and the Richmond Art Museum.
