Henry Bainbridge McCarter (1866-1942) was an artist who straddled the leap from realism to modernism at the turn of the 20th century. As a teacher for many years, he influenced a generation of modern artists. McCarter was born in Norristown, Pennsylvania. At a young age, he attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, (PAFA), where he studied under Thomas Eakins and became an accomplished realist painter. He graduated from PAFA in 1883, at the tender age of seventeen.; After graduation, McCarter embarked on a trip to Paris, where he would have seen the art of the Post-Impressionists. On a second trip to Europe, McCarter met many celebrated artists of the day, including Vincent Van Gogh, Camille Pissarro, and Edgar Degas.
