Louis Charles Vogt was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. A talented painter, Vogt employed a free style of brushstroke and often rendered forms with broad, sweeping strokes. His studies at the Cincinnati Art Academy with Frank Duveneck had a profound impact on his work. His subject matter and style were also reminiscent of the Ashcan School, a group of New York painters who rejected the fantasies of American Impressionism in favor of a more realistic chronicle of 20th century life. Vogt was an avid traveler and adventurer who savored life and appreciated each experience as it unfolded. He left an intriguing visual legacy in his depictions of Cincinnati and other places at the turn of the century, filled with ambition and mystery.
