Charles Burton Barber Wall Art

Born in London, England, Charles Burton (Born in 1845) had a passion for wildlife and is known for his paintings of animals. His early paintings featured images of red deer and other animals. He painted alongside many leading Arts and Crafts artists of the Victorian era, but he was among the few who focused on animals. He attended classes at the Academy Schools, and managed to win an award for a drawing he did of an antique. Two years after receiving that award, Burton moved to Notting Hill where he took part in a show at the Royal Academy. He liked to spend most of his time outside and created paintings of deer and other wild animals. In the course of his work, he became a close friend of Queen Victoria, who contracted him to paint her grandchildren and her dogs.

Henry Edwin Landseer also became his friend and they worked so closely. Henry was the queen’s personal portrait artist. After Henry’s death, Burton continued to work with the queen until his own death. His first painting was shown in 1866. The painting was titled “Favorite Dogs” and the show was a great success. After that, he exhibited at least 2 paintings in 1869, but he took a year off before he came back with three new paintings. His art is found in many galleries, museums, institutions and homes around the world. His art is highly priced by many collectors, both private and corporate. He frequently reproduced his paintings in various forms.
