PILGRIMS GOING TO CHURCH

"PILGRIMS GOING TO CHURCH"  is the most famous painting made by George Henry Boughton.


George Henry Boughton was born in England and his parents took him to America when he was a baby. When he grew up, he became a painter and sold his first painting when he was 19 years old. He took the money and visited London. Then he went back to America for a couple of years. He decided to study in Paris for a while, but eventually made London his home.

His paintings of two pilgrims going to Canterbury inspired Van Gogh's first sermon. Van Gogh admired his work very much.

He liked to paint landscapes and also pictures of people. He also illustrated books. In this painting that we are studying, he shows a group of Pilgrims walking to church. It is winter time and there is snow on the ground.

Why do you think the men are carrying guns? Life was very hard for these early settlers, and many of them died because of the extreme conditions.
