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

Charles Branwhite was born in Bristol in 1817 and studied first under his father, a local artist of some repute in that city.  He seems at first to have proposed to become a sculptor and only took to painting in oil at a later date. 

He was the intimate friend of William Muller (1812-1845) and worked much with him.  In 1849 he became an associate of the Old Water Colour Society, but never passed to full membership. 

"He greatly affected winter scenes painting, and though a brilliant and facile draughtsman he did not give evidence of much originality.  He loaded his drawings with body colour to such an extent as to render them liable to be considered as works in tempura.He died February 18, 1880.

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.

Son of sculptor Nathan Branwhite, "Charles Branwhite was born at Bristol in 1817, and there studied art under his father, beginning as a sculptor.  His association and friendship, however, with William John Muller, also a native of Bristol, induced him to give his undivided attention to water-colour painting, and his pictures, from the year 1849, formed no small attraction in the gallery in Pall Mall East.

He adopted this change of art notwithstanding the fact that he had gained silver medals for bas-reliefs in 1837 and 1838 at the Society of Arts.  His style of painting shows much of Muller's influence.

Some of his most striking landscapes represent frost scenes.  Among his works are: Post Haste, April Showers on the Eastern Coast, An old Lime-kiln, Kilgarren Castle, Winter Sunset, Old Salmon Trap on the Conway, The Environs of an Ancient Garden, 1852, A Frozen Ferry, 1853 (this and the previous picture received prizes from the Glasgow Art Union), Ferry on the Thames (at the London International Exhibition, 1862), A Black Frost, Snow Storm, North Wales, Salmon Poaching, and On the River Dee, North Wales."
