Biography of Francis Morton JOHNSON

Francis Morton Johnson was born in Waltham, Massachusetts on May 23, 1878, and like many young American artists, left the United States to pursue his artistic education in Paris at the Academy Julian under the tutelage of Jean-Paul Laurens. He exhibited at the Salon d’Automne in 1907 and 1908, and also each year between 1908 and 1914 at the Salon des Indépendants, which was interrupted between 1915 and 1919 during the second World War.

A still life exhibited in 1908 was purchased for the national French collections, and first deposited in 1909 at the Berlioz Museum in La- Côte-Saint-André, then in the Town-Hall of this city. He notably exhibited in 1912 at the Salon des Artistes Français with other fellow artists Louis Rittman, Richard Miller, Preston Dickenson, Aston Knight. This event, due to the participation of many American artists, was presented in the May first issue of The New York Times.

He also exhibited at the Galerie Georges Petit in Paris and in the United States at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Annual in both 1908 and 1910 . Francis Morton Johnson was  a member of the American Art Association of Paris.

The artist was also known for inventing a device for registering the human voice on motion picture films, which was co-patented in 1923 with his wife Adélaïde Faucon.

He died in Neuilly-sur-Seine on November 19, 1931.

Researched and submitted by Pierre Sinay who wrote: "Every information has been checked carefully. Note his birthplace, which is Waltham and not Boston and also note a painting which is in the town hall of La-Côte-Saint-André, the birth city of the famous French composer Hector Berlioz.
