Charles Edward Wilson (1854-1941) was a painter of rustic genre subjects in watercolour who studied at the Sheffield School of Art. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours and the Royal Society of British Artists between 1889 and 1929 although he only became a full-time painter in 1895.
His work 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.
