Key Set Entry


A founding member of the Photo-Secession, Frank Eugene (born Frank Eugene Smith in New York City) studied painting at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. After his return to the United States in 1894 he worked as a stage designer and portrait painter and learned how to photograph. In 1907 Eugene was appointed to the staff of the Institute of Photography in Munich-Schwabing and in 1913 to the chair of nature photography at the Royal Academy of Graphic Arts, Leipzig.
