Biography

Charles Walter Simpson was the son of Major General C. R. Simpson of the Lincolnshire Regiment. Due to a riding accident Charles could not join the Army and was largely self-taught, but he studied for a while in 1904 with Lucy Kemp Welsh, who was well known for her horse paintings. In 1910, he worked at the Académie Julian in Paris. In 1913 Simpson married fellow artist Ruth Alison and a few years later they started a painting school at St. Ives. Simpson mainly painted landscapes, and bird and sporting motifs. He also wrote and illustrated a number of books. From 1913-24 the Simpsons lived in London but they later returned to Cornwall.
