This is a bit of information on the Penfolds of Lockport from the Archives of AskART:
Expatriate painter, Frank Penfold was the son of William Penfold, a portrait painter in Lockport and Buffalo, New York. Frank trained with his father in portraiture and later at the Academie Julian in Paris (1884).
Frank Penfold was in France by 1879 and later had a home in Pont Aven, Brittany. He occasionally returned to Buffalo and in 1891, taught a class at the School of Buffalo Fine Arts Academy. He also helped in organizing the Municipal Art League in 1901.
