BOGLE, James, painter, born in Georgetown, South Carolina, in 1817; died in Brooklyn, New York, 11 October 1873. He came to New York in 1836 and entered the studio of Professor Morse, inventor of the telegraph and the founder of the national academy of design. Mr. Bogle, confining himself to portrait painting, soon achieved distinction in that department. In 1850 he was elected an associate of the national academy, and in 1861 an academician. For many years his pictures occupied annually a prominent position at the academy" but he exhibited only at rare intervals in the later years of his life, when the state of his health compelled him to live in the south. He executed portraits of John C. Calhoun, Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, Chief-Justice Jones, Bishop Atkinson, of North Carolina, De Witt Clinton, and Rev. Dr. Budington. Among his later pictures were portraits of General John A. Dix and Henry J. Raymond.
