Charles Stuart was born in 1838 to William and Amelia Stuart, who were both artists. He was a prolific painter first exhibiting at the British Institution at the age of 16 focusing on still-life painting in his early years before switching solely to landscapes in 1871. Successful, he exhibited widely including more than forty works at the Royal Academy. Today his works can be found in public collections among them the Manchester and the Southampton City art galleries.
