Artists Biography

Charles Edward Wilson

British fl.1891
Wilson was a painter of rustic genre subjects in watercolour. He exhibited seventeen works at the Royal Academy and thirteen works at the New Watercolour Society as well as exhibiting at various other venues. He was born at Whitwell in Nottinghamshire and lived at Addiscombe in Surrey. Wilson studied at Sheffield School of Art.

Titles at the Royal Academy include; “The Light of the Cottage”,

“Gathering Blackberries” and “The Farmer’s Daughter”.

The work of Charles Edward Wilson is always intensely personal with a rare feeling for the beauty of colour and rendered with a charming grace of line. His paintings capture the picturesque and romantic aspect of his subject and at the same time display an inspirational power. His workmanship can only be described as superb.

Many would argue that Wilson with his fine, sound workmanship (in a style which, Carlton Alfred Smith separately considered) has not been matched by many later watercolour artists with the same amount of truth and value.
