Charles William Taylor was a wood and copper plate engraver, watercolour painter and teacher. He was born in Wolverhampton where he first studied art and later was accepted at The Royal College of Art, subsequently becoming an associate of the Royal Society of Painters and Etchers where he rose to full membership in 1930. He exhibited there on a total of 58 occasions. He also exhibited 36 times at The Royal Academy, 15 times at The Royal Hibernian Academy, Once at The Royal Institute of Watercolour Painters, twice at The Royal Scottish Academy and many others.
His watercolours are delicately executed and beautifully drawn. The precise locations are unknown; however they are probably close to Findon in West Sussex, where the artist retired. Findon sits underneath Cissbury Ring, just behind the South Downs above Worthing.
