Charles Warren Eaton

Born February 22 1857, in Albany, New York, Eaton was primarily a lanscape painter, with two distinctive styles. The first subject, intimate,and tonalist in style, typically contained pasture, trees and sometimes a small patch of water or stone fence. The second subject, grander in manner, was a landscape with a grouping of tall pine trees, often backlit with the glow of a setting sun. Many of his largest works were in this style, and he became known as “the pine tree painter”. He only rarely included human, or animal figures in his landscapes.
