CHARLES HAZELWOOD SHANNON
Shannon, Charles (Hazelwood) (1863-1937) English painter and lithographer. Along with Charles Ricketts, Shannon concentrated on investigating and perfecting lithographic techniques, woodcut illustrations and painting, as well as contributing to their shared publishing concerns. Shannon drew his greatest inspiration from the Old Masters: Titian's 'tender light' and the source of 'colour beauty' had a profound influence, especially on his portraits and figure compositions. His muted tones and atmospheric backgrounds owe much to Whistler. Shannon was aware of contemporary art movements but found them of little relevance to his work, preferring to identify with the 'Old Guard' working with religious and classical subject matter. His portraits and lithographs are amongst his finest and most sensitive work. He was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1911 and to the Royal Academy in 1920.
