Biography   William Babcock

An expatriate painter, noted for figure painting of peasants as well as Classical, Biblical scenes, mythology subjects, and still lifes, William Babcock was born in Boston, Massachusetts but lived most of his life in France.   In 1847, he became one of the first Americans to study with Thomas Couture in Paris.

He then went to the village of Barbizon where, along with other American artists, he did peasant genre paintings.  He became good friends with Jean-Francois Millet, a leading Barbizon painter, whose figure painting much influenced Babcock. 

Babcock introduced William Morris Hunt to Millet, and, in turn, Hunt became a strong exponent of the Barbizon School of painting in America.
