Charles Franklin Chamberlain (1871-1947) Born in Webster Township, Michigan, Chamberlain initially began his art studies at the Detroit Academy, and in 1892 he went off to study at the Art Students League in New York. His first trip to France was in 1894, where he studied a the Academy Julian under Tony Robert-Fleury and Jules Lefebvre, and also at the Aman-Jean School. He later studied in France under Luc Olivier Merson and Raphael Collins. By 1907 he had returned home and married soon after. For many years he maintained a studio at the family home in Dexter, Michigan. There, the family farm, besides an abundance of livestock and acres of grain, included an apple orchard, working oxen and horses, a plethora of sheep, and many cows, ducks and chicks. Many of these animals and much of the landscape came to be featured in his artwork. In addition, the artist was an avid photographer.
Chamberlain is known to have exhibited as early as 1903 with the Society of Western Artists, and also at art shows in Detroit and Chicago.
Painting is an oil on canvas, laid down on board. Size is 18" x 24." Unframed. Unsigned, but note; the estate stamp was on the reverse of the canvas prior to being laid down on board. Painting is from the family of the artist. Subject is Uncle Lou, brother of the artist, at their farm in Dexter, Michigan. Artwork has been conserved and is in good condition. Unframed. Absolutely wonderful painting by this artist!
