Charles E. Chambers Art

American, 1883-1941

Charles Edward Chambers (August 9, 1883 - November 5, 1941) was an American illustrator and classical painter. In 1917, during World War I, Chambers illustrated a poster for the United States Food Administration, titled "Food Will Win the War."

Chambers was also commissioned by Chesterfield cigarettes. His series of billboard advertisements ran for five years

Chambers' style of painting has been described as, "extremely competent, marked by the subtlety of value and color." Other critics have said that because of the "polish" of his paintings, one would think he had studied at the French Academy. The use of color was considered his strength.
