Charles (Charlie) McAuley (1910–1999) was an Irish painter. He was born in Gruig, Glenarm, Ireland, one of the nine Glens of Antrim, now in Northern Ireland, between Carnlough and Broughsane, on March 15, 1910.
Despite being from a small rural village, Charles pursued painting from an early age, in an area when farming was one of the main sources of life and income. He went on to become a landscape and figurative painter.
Early in his life he was spotted by James H. Craig at a local Glens Feis who encouraged him and that influence inspired his early work. His paintings depicted the rivers, mountains, seascapes and rural life that surrounded him.
