Artist Biography:
Charles Whymper RI 1853 (London) - 1941
A painter of landscapes, animal genre and angling subjects, and illustrations. He was the son of J. W. Whymper and exhibited from 1870. He travelled extensively and in 1923 an exhibition of Egyptian work was held at the Walker Gallery. He was elected to the RI in 1909 and lived in London and at Houghton, Huntingdonshire. He illustrated books on travel, sport and natural history, and published Egyptian Birds as well as several papers on the Pheasantry of England, Bird Life. The Connoisseur comments on his bird studies at the RI in 1922 'Mr. Whymper's relies on almost scientific presentment, correct to the last detail, of the feathered creatures he chooses to depict'.
