This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A memer of the Flagg family of distinguished Connecticut artists, Montague Flagg was the son of Jared Bradley Flagg and Sarah Montague.  Early in adulthood, his career was business, something he pursued in Australia.  However, at age 26, encouraged by his father, he turned to his art talent. 

In 1872, he went to Paris to study, and was enrolled in the Ecole des Beaux Arts and before that in the atelier of Louis-Marie-Francois Jacquesson de la Chevreuse.  Having been gone a long time, and known as a 'world traveler', Flagg was a portrait subject of Thomas Eakins who titled the work, The Wanderer.

Ten years later after arrival, Montague Flagg returned to America from France and set up a studio in New York City, where he did portrait and genre paintings.  He also taught classes at Miss Porter's School in Farmington, Connecticut, and from 1885 to 1886, taught at the school of the National Academy of Design to replace Edward Ward.

Flagg began exhibiting at the Academy in 1877 and continued for many exhibitions into the 1880s, winning the Thomas R. Proctor Prize for Portraiture in 1909.  He was also an exhibitor and member of the Society of American Artists and became an member of the National Academy as a result of the Academy's merger in 1906 with the Society of American Artists.
