"Warming by the Fire" by Charles Green

$6,40043% Off


Oil on panel, measures 17" x 21" painting and with frame 24" x 27.5". Signed and dated 1885 lower left. Charles Green studied at Leigh’s School of Fine Art and under the engraver, J W Whymper, before quickly establishing himself as a painter and illustrator. Specialising in genre pieces, he joined the Langham Sketching Club and was elected to the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (ARI 1864; RI 1867). His elder brother, Henry Towneley Green, was also a member. His contribution of contemporary subjects to the early numbers of The Graphic were admired by Van Gogh, but he was best known for his depiction of period settings and for his illustrations to The Old Curiosity Shop in Dickens’ ‘Household Edition’ (1871). Green often transformed his delicate pen and ink illustrations with the addition of watercolour. Also painting in oils, he exhibited at the Royal Academy until 1883. He died at Hampstead 15 years later on 4 May 1898. The Fine Art Society held a memorial show in October of the same year. His work is represented in numerous public collections, including the V&A; and the Mercer Art Gallery.
