Henry A. Bacon was brought into the world in Haverhill, Massachusetts, in 1839. During the American common war, he went about as a field craftsman for Frank Leslie’s Weekly while he filled in as a fighter inside the thirteenth Massachusetts Infantry. After the war, he contemplated craftsmanship with Walter Gay, who proposed that he go to Paris to consider formal artistry instruction. He is credited to have been the principal painter from an extended gathering of painters to come to Pont-Aven, including Paul Gauguin. This period is referred to these days as the Pont-Aven School.
