About the artist
Little is known of the draughtsman, lithographer and publisher of portraits Charles William Walton. There are 13 portrait lithographs by the artist in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London. Many of the works he produced were of contemporary figures, including Francis Thomas de Grey Cowper, Seventh Earl Cowper (1834¬-1905), who became Lord Lieutenant of Ireland; Charlotte Anne Montagu-Douglas-Scott (née Thynne), Duchess of Buccleuch (1811-1895), who served as Mistress of the Robes to Queen Victoria; and former Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, Earl of Beaconsfield (1804-1881). Some of Walton’s portraits were used to illustrate books.
