This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Frank Convers Mathewson, 1862-1941, was a prolific Rhode Island painter who specialized in watercolors and oils. He is known for his landscapes, florals and marine paintings. He studied at the Academie Julian in Paris with Jean Paul Laurens, and at the National School of Decorative Arts, also in Paris.

Early in his career Mathewson spent a year in the design department of the Gorham Manufacturing Company in Providence, Rhode Island, and then joined Frank Vincent DuMond's painting class in Italy. He spent a winter in Munich sharing a studio with Stacy Tolman. Mathewson also painted in New York City for 11 years.

He was a member of many art organizations including the Salmagundi Club and the Chicago Water Color Club. A one-time President of the Providence Water Color Club, he was an artist-member of the Providence Art Club. He was also a member of the New York Watercolor Club, the American Watercolor Society, and the North Shore Art Association.

At the height of his career, he received prizes and awards and he exhibited in Paris and Turin, Italy. After the death of Sydney Burleigh, Mrs. Burleigh wanted Mathewson to occupy Mr. Burley's studio. Consequently, he moved to the Fleur-de-Lis (a building in the Providence Art Club Complex) where he remained for the rest of his life.

His works are held in the collections of the Rhode Island School of Design, the Providence Art Club, the Providence University Club, the Boston Art Club, and the South County (RI) Art Association.

Mathewson's major exhibits included the Boston Art Club, 1899, 1907-1908, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Ann., 1900; Providence 1903 (prize), Art Institute of Chicago, 1907-1917; and the Providence Art Club, 1930 (prize).
