  • About the artist
    Charles Edward Conder was a portrait, landscape painter, printmaker and illustrator. However, he is best known for his watercolours on silk and fan paintings. The son of a civil engineer, Conder was born in London but spent his early childhood in India. At the age of 17 he joined his uncle in Australia and later obtained a post at ‘The Illustrated Sydney News’. He studied painting in Sydney and Melbourne. Conder later moved to Paris to study and exhibited in Paris from 1892 for the rest of his life. In 1893, he became a member of the New English Art Club and settled in London in 1897. He was forced to give up painting in 1906 and, after a long period of illness, died at Virginia Water in 1909.
