Bogle exhibited frequently in esteemed venues including the Royal Academy, the Royal Scottish Academy and many galleries in the United Kingdom. Beagle’s portraits were greatly influenced by his studies in Dusseldorf and contained Victorian stylistic qualities. As the Victorian style faded from popularity, Bogle was able to adapt his painting technique to accommodate the changing times. Bogle made a number of strong genre pieces, including “Reading to Grandfather”, which expresses powerful emotions of everyday life.
