This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter, illustrator and teacher, Charles Lennox Wright I usually signed his paintings C. Lennox Wright. He was married to Charlotte Elizabeth Gardner who painted and copied paintings of Howard Pyle.

Wright lived in New York City, where he had a rotagravure business and did very little painting - even though his family have found a few paintings. He was "The Pioneer of Zinc Etching" which revolutionized photographic reproduction, according to the NY Historical Society quarterly dated April 1952.

He was also a photographer in Frank Leslie's "Gallery," where photographic portraits of eminent men were transformed into wood engravings.His etchings were donated to the NY Historical Society and there was an exhibition there in 1952 to honor the 100th year of his birth.

His painting "Sweet Dreams", dated 1882, was donated to the Salmagundi Club in New York City, but later sold. The dog that posed in the painting belonged to him.
