Frank Eugene was born in New York in 1865. He studied at the City College of New York. After 1886 he attended the Royal Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. He moved to Germany in 1906. Here he became a recognized painter and was associated with such artists as Willi Geiger. His style may be related to Jug­endstil, the South German and Austrian counterpart of Art Nouveau. Eugene first turned to photography for recreation. Yet as his photography developed he won wide respect as a teacher. About 1913 the Royal Academy of the Graphic Arts at Leipzig created a special chair in photography and appointed him Royal Professor of Pictorial Photography, the first aca­demic recognition of this stature for photography in the world. Eugene died in 1936.
