Biography Charles Furneaux
Charles Furneaux, who settled in Honolulu in 1880, is best known as a landscape specialist, and the earliest of Hawaii's resident volcano painters.
Very little is known of his life before he came to Hawaii in 1880. He was born in Boston about 1835 and was a drawing instructor in schools in that area for some time. For many years he lived in the town of Melrose, Massachusetts. Even less is known of his training as an artist, and his reputation derives solely from the paintings he executed while in Hawaii. During the 19th century numerous famous artists from Europe and America visited Hawaii, then known as the Sandwich Islands, and were attracted to the island of Hawaii in particular by its spectacular landscapes and active volcanoes.
