Charles Robert Leslie was a major painter and writer. He was born the son of American parents in Britain's capital London. At the age of five, the family returned to the United States. Even as a teenager, he shared two great passions - painting and writing. Already during his training as a bookseller Leslie improved his salary as a portrait painter. With success - the portrait of George Frederick Cooke, a well-known English actor, attracted the interest of art connoisseurs. So did Samuel T. Bradford, director of the Academy of Fine Arts Pennsylvania. Bradford expressed his appreciation to Leslie. With his help Leslie got one of the coveted places for a scholarship in Europe.

So it was that Charles Robert Leslie returned to England at the age of 19 to study at one of the most prestigious art schools in Europe. His lecturers included, among others, the well-known history painter Benjamin West . He was one of the first American painters to gain international renown. Like Leslie's parents, Benjamin West was born in Pennsylvania before being appointed to London. During his studies at the Royal Academy of Arts Leslie traveled again and again through Europe. He visited Brussels, Antwerp and Paris, was inspired and captured what he saw in his pictures. Works from these academic and academic years have been exhibited regularly at exhibitions of students at the London College of Art with great success. However, the painter made his worldwide breakthrough in his later field of expertise as a painter of literary history. The themes were inspired by the great pieces by Shakespeare, Irving and Scott. He translated scenes from well-known pieces with unbelievable ease into works of art that still have a high symbolic value for England today.

Even in America, the home country of his parents, he was no longer an unknown artist. That was not just because of his talent. He also made a name for himself as an art author. He gave lectures and wrote various English textbooks. The "Handbook for Young Artists" was his most significant. It was impossible to imagine an art academy without it. He received awards and became an honorary member of the National Academy of Design in New York City. © Meisterdrucke
