Charles Gaylord

Charles Seely Gaylord was active/lived in Connecticut.  Charles Gaylord is known for landscape and portrait painting.

Biography   Charles Gaylord

Little is known of this landscape painter except that he attended Yale College but left because of eye problems.  He remained in his home in Gaylordsville, Connecticut until his death on October 26, 1862, when he was gored by a bull when he was painting a farm scene.

He was a good friend of several Hudson River painters including Thomas Cole and Jasper Cropsey.  It is thought that he was self taught as an artist but likely was influenced by the Hudson River School of painting.
