Artist of the moment………Charles Warren Eaton

 

Charles Warren Eaton was an American painter who worked in a tonalist style. Charles Warren Eaton was born in Albany, New York in the year 1857. Eaton was renown for his landscapes and for his depictions of eastern white pine trees.

His family was not well off financially and young Charles began working at the age of nine.

A friend took a painting class and this inspired Charles Warren Eaton to become a painter. He moved to New York City at the age of twenty two and would attend the Art Student’s League and also the National Academy of Design.

Eaton worked in oils and was also a master painter of watercolor and produced a small number of lithographs and pastel works. He was an original member of the American Watercolor Society.

The artist’s career ended quietly and with few sales due to the economic tough times in America which included the Great Depression.

Charles Warren Eaton passed away in 1937.

Below we view a painting by Eaton that get’s an appraisal on the Antique’s Roadshow:
