Biography from VALLEJO GALLERY, LLC, Marine Art Specialists:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

As it is often found, inspiration arises within the family bonds for many 19th century marine artists. Charles Taylor is not an exception to this, with the fact that his father, Charles Sr.(fl.1836-1871) started exhibiting works in London in the 1830s. But the father, a painter of primarily historic events, didn’t start painting marine scenes until the mid-1840s, after the successful strides of his son into the genre. Both artists enjoyed commercial associations with the Suffolk Street Galleries.

Charles Jr. held a total of 75 London exhibitions, four of which were with the Royal Academy and eight others with the British Institution. Of his known works, they are almost universally marines and mostly of the tidal Thames and Estuary ports, especially of the Yarmouth and Portsmouth areas.

Works by the father and son are often attributed to either, as both men signed ‘Charles Taylor’ with no additional initial or designation. What becomes most apparent is that junior’s work holds a better technical sense, especially with his use of watercolors. Perhaps this is because of his collaborations with British artist/lithographer T.G. Dutton, and the necessity for tight accuracy when creating a work on stone for the demanding lithographic print process.
