CHARLES CLEMENT CALDERON

1870 -1906
Oil on canvas 33 x 46 inches
Framed size 42 ¼ x 55 ¼ inches

Charles Calderon was born in Paris.
He stayed in Paris and went on to study art at the Beaux-Arts Academie under Alexander Cabanel (1823-1889) who was a professor at the École des Beaux-Arts and taught there until his death in 1889.
Calderon clearly loved painting views of Venice as the vast majority of his paintings are of this wonderful place.
Indeed many of his works were titled, “The Grand Canal of Venice”, but unlike many other artists, he does not seem to repeat his subjects.
His style is influenced by that of Felix Zeim. His colours are always bolder and brushwork is always vibrant.

Calderon participated in the Colonial Exposition of 1906 but died later the same year, when only thirty-six.
