Born in Norwich, England as a farmer's son, Boughton emigrated to Albany, New York with his family at the age of three.
The author cites a letter written by Boughton in which he states: "The practice that one gets in drawing for drawing's sake is very valuable. Nearly all the best artists in England are or have been draughtsmen on wood. Millais was telling me the other day that those who let their practise [sic] of drawing lapse in any degree, fall off at once more or less in their painting" (444).
