Brief Biography-Charles William Bartlett was born in Bridport, Dorestshire, England. He started out to be a chemist however he decided that art was his passion and enrolled in the London Academy of Art. He went on to study at the Academie Julian in Paris under Gustave Boulanger and Jules Joseph Lefebvre. When he returned to England and married, his wife and son died in childbirth. He thereafter decided to travel Europe with the artist Frank Brangwyn from Wales for a number of years. Whilst travelling Europe he focused his art on peasant life.
In 1898 he returned to England and married for a second time. With his wife, he travelled the Far East and in Japan and he had several paintings produced in Japanese prints and woodblocks. Instead of returning to England as they had intended, they settled in Hawaii where they spent the remainder of their lives. He co-founded the Honolulu Printmakers in Hawaii.
