Bohm was born in Cleveland, Ohio.[1] He studied at the Académie Julian in Paris and travelled in Europe. Between 1895-1904 he made his home at the Etaples art colony. Described as a romantic visionary, his heroic depiction of Étaples fishermen received a gold medal at the Paris Salon in 1898. He went on to teach painting at a school in London until 1911 before returning to the United States to join the school of artists in Cape Cod.

Bohm became a National Academician in 1920, dying three years later in Provincetown, a town at the tip of Cape Cod.[2] His paintings are among the collections of the Smithsonian Institution, the National Gallery of Art, and the Luxembourg Gallery in Paris;[1] there is also a mural in his hometown at the Cuyahoga County Courthouse.
