Frank Henry Shapleigh (1842 - 1906)

Frank Henry Shapleigh was an American painter, chiefly of landscapes, who is known for his works depicting the White Mountains of New England.

Shapleigh was a respected and admired artist within his own lifetime. Over the course of his career, he was the artist in residence of the Crawford House, located in New Hampshire's White Mountains and the Ponce de Leon Hotel in St. Augustine, Florida. His connection with New Hampshire would be a life-long one, in 1896 he built a summer home and permanent studio in the community of Jackson.

Frank Henry Shapleigh is most highly-regarded for the landscape paintings of the White Mountains which, for much of his life, he called home. He had a habit of writing the names of the locations he painted on the back of the canvas which makes his work easy to chronicle. He painted landmarks such as Mount Washington from many different views and also included among his works renderings of some of the most popular tourist attractions of his time.

Shapleigh was a native of Boston and conducted his art education in both his native city, at the Lowell Institute of Drawing, and in Europe from 1867 - 1868 under Emile Lambinet.
