George Caleb Bingham (March 20, 1811 – July 7, 1879) was an American artist, whose work depicted his view of American life in the frontier lands along the Missouri River. Left to languish in obscurity, Bingham’s work was rediscovered in the 1930s and he is now widely considered one of the greatest American painters of the 1800s.
