This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Charles Thomas Burt was an English Midlands landscape painter, 1823-1902, born in Wolverhampton, England and pupil of Samuel Lines from Birmingham.  He was a friend and pupil of David Cox (q.v.) who influenced Burt's painting style.

His expressive palette shows all the qualities associated with the Birmingham School. His light fresh palette contrasts with the heavy colors of the Norwich and Suffolk Schools, giving his subjects a brighter and attractive quality. He swept aside the darker clouds of David Cox and allowed light to echo broadly across his landscapes.

Burt exhibited 18 paintings at the Royal Academy (1850-1892), 6 paintings at the British Institute, 6 paintings at Suffolk Street, one painting at Grosvenor Gallery, and various other paintings at the Society of British Artists and in the provinces. He was a member of the Birmingham Society of Artists, 1856. He specialized in highland and moorland landscapes.
