Winslow Homer was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1836, Homer was the second of three sons of Charles
Savage Homer and Henrietta Benson Homer, both from long lines of New Englanders. His mother was a
gifted amateur watercolorist and Homer's first teacher, and she and her son had a close relationship
throughout their lives. Homer took on many of her traits, including her quiet, strong-willed, terse,
sociable nature; her dry sense of humor; and her artistic talent. Homer had a happy childhood, growing up
mostly in then rural Cambridge, Massachusetts. He was an average student, but his art talent was on display early.
