1814, Aug 11894, Sep 22
a 19th-century painter from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, who was also known as an illustrator and printmaker. While still a child, Charles showed a talent for drawing; between 1831 and 1834 he produced watercolor studies of birds. He worked for a few years in an office before resolving at the age of 22 to turn to painting. In 1837 he enrolled at the academy in The Hague, where he was taught by Wijnand Nuijen and, after Nuyen's death, by Anthonie Waldorp. During his Hague period, which lasted until 1843 or 1846), he painted landscapes and beach and village views. From 1849 to 1869 he lived in Amsterdam and thereafter in Rotterdam. He started painting looser, more along the lines of the upcoming Impressionism movement.
