The life of Richard Caton Woodville, born in 1856, had been quite exciting from an early age. His father had died before his birth and so were the key caregivers in his still young life, first his sister and his mother. She was the daughter of a Düsseldorf architect and moved with her two children first from London to Saint Petersburg. From there, the path of the small family continued to Düsseldorf. There, Richard Caton Woodville studied junior painting at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and followed in the footsteps of his father and his mother.

His teachers were among others Wilhelm Camphausen and Eduard Gebhardt . Between 1875 and 1881 Richard Caton had to submerge Woodville. Reason was an arrest warrant for him because of trespassing. The painter went to Paris and studied here. His most important reference person was the history painter Jean Leon Gerome . Later, the artist returned to London and made a name for himself primarily as a painter of military and wartime images. Above all, his experiences, which he had collected in 1877 on a journey through Albania and Montenegro, were helpful. There was the Russian-Turkish War at that time.

In 1882 he was also an eyewitness of war in Egypt. One of his major works is the Charge of the Light Brigade. There, Woodville recreates a scene from the Battle of Balaklava in the Crimean War of 1854. © Meisterdrucke
