I found this site while trying to obtain more biographical information about Charles Campbell, esp. his latter years and when/where he died. I have two of his works. A 1930's oil I call "Blue Lady" showing a very thin woman with a very long neck in a 1930's thin-strapped blue dress with one arm extended out and up, leaning lightly against a door frame (hand hidden) and the other arm akimbo,hair brown flecked in gold, short haircut w/elongated kinky curls and large eyes looking afar. Very haunting and to me mesmerizing. I also have his signed book, Among the Living. The other painting remains unhung - a cemetery scene sketched in black. I bought these things from a contemporary of his now also deceased who was part of his Cleveland life, a friend of his first wife. I'll keep searching as time permits but would love to hear from anyone who could relate in re Campbell's last years.

I was a close friend of Charles and Julia in Phoenix, AZ from 1957 to his death in 1985. I have a number of his paintings, ink drawings and monotypes that I display in my home in Sedona.
His biographical note is mistaken. He and Julia lived in Los Angeles, moved to New Orleans, and then to Phoenix. He continued painting primarily in oils and enamels on masonite. He made sculptures and wrote poems as a creative diversion.

A collection of art, unseen by the public, painted by Charles Malcolm Campbell has been discovered in the mid pacific. We have a wealth of information about the artist if anyone is interested.

I also have a painting by Charles Campbell purchased in 1965 in Arizona. It is of a woman sitting on the ground looking at a lady bug. I love this painting. Would love any more information that anyone might have!

Charles Campbell was my great-uncle. If anyone wants more information I can tell you some about him. He was a remarkable man (as was his wife Julia). (Well actually she was a remarkable woman.)

I just discovered that an oil painting titled MEN that had pride of place in my northern Ohio childhood home in the early 1950s was painted by Charles Campbell in 1948. We were going through some family archives recently and found an entire file of correspondence between my mother and Campbell, dated from that time, and while he still lived in Cleveland. They had mutual friends. It was quite an exciting discovery and I have since bought his signed/ numbered autobiographical book, "Among the Living," published around 1958. It was a fascinating insight into the man, and certainly is reflected in the oil that hangs now in my home in Colorado. The man was a wonderful writer.

I am glad that others have shared information on this artist. I am interested in his work. I have an original piece that is quite interesting. My grandfather, Roger Holt also a painter, was a friend of his and they exchanged artwork up in Jerome, Arizona.
Interesting timing. This is the first I have looked up the artist, Charles Campbell. My husband inherited an terrific etching of a nude woman by Campbell. We think it might have hung in my sister in laws gallery in Scottsdale in the 70s--The Art Connection,

I have a small painting by Charles Campbell that he did in Scottsdale in his later years. A gallery on Central Avenue in Phoenix exhibited his work in the 70's as well as a gallery in Scottsdale. Could this be Charles Malcolm Campbell? He is reported to have been reclusive.
I have a copy of a small book that is autobiographical with an introduction to Wm. O'Brien (have no idea of where I got it). It says Campbell was born in Dayton, Ohio in 1905. One man shows were held at Ferargil Gallery, NYC; O'Brien's Art Emporium, Scottsdale, AZ; Nortons, St. Louis; Rosequist, Tucson, Az; and Swarthe-Burr, Beverly Hills, CA. He also exhibited at the whitney Museum; Art Institute of Chicago; cleveland Museum of Art; Brooklyn Museum; Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts; L.A. city Museum; Delgado; Metropolitan Museum of Art; and Phoenix Museums. I noticed that Case Western Reserve U. has 5 of his lithographs pictured on their web site.
