Charles Bartlett

Charles Bartlett is recognised nationally as one of today's foremost watercolour talents. The combination of his highly developed skills as a water- colourist and his interest in the traditional subject matter of the great school of East Anglian watercolourists gives rise to work of considerable substance. A lifelong interest in the sea and coast has motivated his work as a painter and printmaker.

Born 1921 in Lincolnshire, Charles Bartlett trained as a painter and etcher at Eastbourne School of Art and Royal College of Art. From 1960 to1970 he was a full-time lecturer in Drawing and Painting at Harrow School of Art. He currently lives and works in East Anglia.

Charles Bartlett was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. He held the prestigious position of President of the Royal Watercolour Society from 1987-92. Examples of his work can be found in collections across the UK including the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Arts Council of Great Britain.
