This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in LeRoy, New York, in 1863, Francis Day studied at the Art Students League in New York and then in Paris at the prestigious Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Upon his return from Europe he won early recognition as an accomplished painter of intimate family scenes, Belle Epoque genre and portraits.

He exhibited at the National Academy of Design 1888-1897, winning a prize there in 1895, and was elected an Associate in 1906. Day also exhibited in Philadelphia at PAFA in 1893, at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1894 and 1908, in Boston in 1902 and at the Corcoran Gallery in 1907.

Day's known addresses included Lanesboro, Massachusetts, New York City 1888-1889, Nutley, New Jersey 1892-97, and New York again in 1908. His works are in
permanent collections of the Montclair Art Museum in New Jersey and the
Lanesboro Town Hall, among others.

He signed his paintings "Francis Day", without the use of "James" which appears as his first name in most references (Falk lists him twice because of this). Although his date of death is noted as 1942, Day's well-established career seems to have been cut short, since his activity and dated works are known only through 1908.

Submitted by Cornelia C Moynihan, of Moynihan Fine Art, December 2003.
Genre painter Francis Day was born August 12, 1863 in Lanesboro, Massachusetts. He apparently began his studies at the Art Students League in New York City at a very young age. He also studied with Hebert and Merson at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France.

He exhibited at the National Academy of Design, in New York City from 1888 to 1897, becoming an Associate member in 1906. He also became a member of the Salmagundi Club, New York City, in 1888 and the Society of American Artists in 1891.

Day is listed in Who was Who in American Art; Biographies of American Artists, 1898-1947; Mantle Fielding's Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptor's and Engravers; the 1861-1900 Exhibition Record of the National Academy of Design; its successor volume, the 1901-1950 Exhibition Record of the National Academy of Design; and Mallett's, Index of Artists.

James Francis Day died in Leroy, New York on June 12, 1942.
