Francis Morton Johnson was born in Waltham, Massachusetts on May 23, 1878, and like many young American artists, left the United States to pursue his artistic education in Paris at the Academy Julian under the tutelage of Jean-Paul Laurens. He exhibited at the Salon d'Automne in 1907 and 1908, and also each year between 1908 and 1914 at the Salon des Indépendants, which was interrupted between 1915 and 1919 during the second World War.
The artist was also known for inventing a device for registering the human voice on motion picture films in 1919. He died in Paris.
