This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Charles Hetherington (1855 - 1938)

Following is an exhibition review:

Charleston Daily Mail, July 12, 1931 P.13 Charleston, West Virginia

Exhibit of paintings at the Charleston Public Library

Best known for his seascapes, which he creates in w/c and oils. Now a business man of 75, Mr. H. until the age of sixty had not touched a brush to canvas. Up to that time he had been a business man (Professional Photographer) of Hinsdale, Ill., filled with a longing to paint, but having neither the time nor money to develop his desire.

Almost at a moments notice, the years of savings vanished in an unfortunate investment, and he found himself, at the time that many men retire, a ruined man. The artist's wife, at this point, took charge insisting that the apparent catastrophe was in reality the opportunity for him to take up his coveted painting. She forced him to turn to brush and palette leaving the financial management of the household to her. Thus Charles Hetherington began to paint in the beautiful woods surrounding Hinsdale and in the next three years had progressed to the point of having his first exhibit in Chicago.

Things from that point began to move rapidly and the artist's success was assured. With the increase of sale of his pictures, Mr & Mrs. H went to La Jolla, California (circa 1920) where he turned to paintings of the sea. He spent a few years in California and then Europe where, just ten years after his first attempts on canvas, where he received an acknowledgments of his attempts of art with a "one man show" at the Selifmann Galleries in Paris.

Shortly after that exhibit he returned to the US where he continues to paint increasingly beautiful pictures. He makes his home in Hinsdale, Illinois and Winter Haven, Florida

Born in Canada and lived and worked predominantly in the US. Studied art in Paris. Professional photographer in Canada. "Active in Guelph, Ontario, 1884." Member of the Chicago Society of Artists.  Immigrated to U.S. in 1888.
