George Henry Boughton (4 decembrie 1833 – 19 ianuarie 1905) a fost un pictor  de peisaje si compozitie, ilustrator si scriitor anglo-american.

Boughton s-a nascut la Norwich in Norfolk, Anglia, fiul fermierului William Boughton. Familia a emigratin  Statele Unite in 1835, iar el a crescut in Albany, New York unde si-a inceput cariera de artist autodidact. In prima etapa a fost influentat de artistii scolii  Hudson River School.La varsta de 19 ani a fost recunoscut ca pictor de peisaje si si-a deschis primul atelier in 1852. In 1853, American Art Union a achizitionat una dintre primele sale lucrari pentru a-i finanta sase luni de studiere a artei in Anglia. A finalizat aceasta perioada de studiu cu un tur de lucru in Lake District, Scotia si Irlanda.

Dupa reintoarcerea in S UA, Boughton si-a expus lucrarile in Washington, D.C. si New York, insa la sfarsitul anilor 1850 a decis in final sa se mute in Europa. Intre 1859-1861 a studiat arta in Franta sub indrumarea lui Pierre Edouard Frère (1819–1886) si Edward Harrison May (1824–1887).

In 1861 Boughton si-a deschis un atelier in Londra, si, cu toate ca traia in Anglia, totusi s-a concentrat pe subiecte din istoria coloniala americana.Tanarul Van-Gogh care a vizitat Londra in 1873-1875 a fost foarte impresionat de lucrarea lui Boughton „God Speed!” .

Boughton a ilustrated  „The Scarlet Letter” a lui Nathaniel Hawthorne si poemele lui Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Boughton a murit de inima pe 19 ianuarie 1905, in atelierul lui din Campden Hill, Londra.
