George F. Higgins (active 1850-1891)


Little is know about George Frank Higgins, but his work suggests an accomplished artist.  Higgins exhibited at the Boston Art Club during the years 1873 to 1891.   He also exhibited at the Boston Athenaeum and Leonard’s Auction Rooms.  In a review of Higgins’s work that appeared in the Boston Evening Transcript of March 18, 1874, the author noted that Higgins’s work did not embrace the “sensational,” but would hold its interest and “improve by age as choice scenes in nature do to the lover of her occult mysteries.”
