Biography  
Charles Frederick Kimball


Charles Frederick Kimball was born in Monmouth, Maine on October 31, 1831, the youngest of thirteen children to a family of Portland architects and builders.

Kimball grew up in Portland and studied as a youth with local artist Charles O. Cole.  In his 20s he developed a close friendship with landscape painter John Bradley Hudson.  The two would often go on sketching trips together and paint and draw directly from nature.
