BACON, Henry, artist, born in Haverhill, Massachusetts, in 1840. He volunteered in the 13th Massachusetts infantry for the civil war, and was wounded. In 1864 he went to Paris and entered the Ecole des beaux arts, studying also under Cabanel and Edward Frere. His best-known work is "Boston Boys and General Gage," which was first exhibited in the Paris salon of 1875 and at the Philadelphia centennial in 1876. His favorite subjects are figures so treated as to tell a story, historical or imaginative, in the most effective manner. His professional residence is for the most part in Paris, and he is a frequent exhibitor at the salon. The titles of some of his more important pictures are "Paying the Scot" (1870)" "Franklin at Home " (1876)" "Les Adieux "and "Land ! Land!" (1878)-"In Normandy" (Paris salon, 1878)" "The Luck of Roaring Camp " (1881); and "Lover's Quarrel" (1882)" " Le Plainariste."
