Artists Biography

Charles Leslie

British fl. 1835
Leslie9277A
Charles Leslie was a British landscape painter. He is recorded as having an address in Wimbledon, London.

One of the better-known painters of the Scottish and Welsh moorland scenes, Leslie was one of the first painters of this subject in the Victorian tradition. He gave the landscape a much more commercial appeal with the focus being on balance, content and light. Leslie would cast warm or open skies over his landscapes with still waters.

Leslie exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1856 to 1862 as well as at the British Institute, Suffolk Street and elsewhere. Titles at the Royal Academy include: “A Shower Passing the Welsh Hills”, “The Crags of Cader”, “Upper Leke” etc.
