Born into Brahmin society, Lizzie Boott was a serious painter intent on a professional career. She studied for several years with William Morris Hunt in Boston and with Thomas Couture outside Paris before spending the summer of 1879 with her tutor and future husband, the artist Frank Duveneck. Through 1886, she regularly exhibited landscapes, portraits, still lifes and figure paintings.
