George Albert Frost

George Albert Frost (American, 1843–1907) was a prominent nineteenth century landscape artist. He spent his early career in North Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he kept a studio, as well as traveling to Europe where he studied under Nicolas de Keyser at the Académie Royale de Belgique in Antwerp. Frost made two trips to Siberia, the first in 1867 as a member of the British Columbia Exploring Expedition, with the purpose of selecting a route to connect a telephone line from San Francisco to Moscow and returned in 1885.
