Biography James Charles
James Charles was born in Warrington, the son of the Welsh cabinetmaker
and designer Richard Charles. In 1872 he entered the Royal
Academy schools before going to study in Paris. There, he was
drawn to Impressionism, and particularly the plein-air movement.
On his return to Britain, he exhibited regularly, and had some success
abroad, winning medals at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1889, and
the Chicago World's Fair in 1893.
This work, exhibited in the 1913-14 Cardiff Exhibition of Works by
Certain Modern Artists of Welsh Birth or Extraction, represents the
moderately progressive 'British Impressionism' associated with the New
English Art Club between the 1890s and the First World War.
