This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted in September of 2006 by Jackie Heinl:

Born in Pittsburgh, Charles Linford would later move to Philadelphia, New York and would spend his final years in New Jersey.  He died in Plainford, New Jersey at a young age of 51.  As a young painter he was a member of the "Gillespie Group," which was a loose collection of artists, including George Hetzel, Alfred S. Wall, Joseph R. Woodwell, David Gilmore Blythe and Jasper Lawman. 

Linford was one of the first artists to discover Scalp Level*, a small town, which became a favorite artists' place until the late 1890s. He was a student of George Hetzel and one of the initial artists to visit Scalp Level, a small town near Johnstown, Pennsylvania, which became a favorite retreat for local artists wishing to escape industrialized Pittsburgh. 

Charles Linford concentrated mainly on landscapes and a majority of Linford's work shows the influence of the French Barbizon* painters whom he admired and tended to follow in color and treatment.  Specifically, his favorite subject was that of birch trees within a fall landscape. 

In 1877, the artist left for Philadelphia and remained until 1893.  During this time, he exhibited every year from 1876 to 1891, with the exception of 1879, 1881 and 1886, at the Pennsylvania Academy* of Fine Arts' Annual Exhibition. 
After Philadelphia, Linford divided his time between Pittsburgh, New York and Plainfield, New Jersey.  In 1890, he lived in New York and exhibited at the National Academy of Design* where he had also exhibited in 1878 and 1879.  He was represented by two landscapes, Solitude and Autumn, Pocono Valley in the first of the Carnegie Internationals*.  Linford's works were included in the private collections of Andrew L. Carnegie and C. H. Wolfe.
