George Henry Boughton was influenced by a hybrid of cultures. Boughton immigrated to Albany, New York from Norwich, England with his parents at the age of three. He sold one of his first paintings to the American Art-Union at the age of nineteen. With encouragement, he studied in London for six months in the following year, at the National Academy in 1858, and Paris in 1859. He returned to London in 1861, where he settled and kept a studio for the rest of his life. He exhibited both in America and England at the National Academy of Design, the Brooklyn Art Association, the 1876 Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia, and the Royal Academy in London. The artist became primarily known for his quietly reflective figures in idyllic landscapes, and his expression of sentimentality in soft, muted tones. He is also famous for depictions from early American history and literature.
