Charles James Lauder (1840 - 1920)

Charles James Lauder was a well known landscape and architectural painter of the Scottish school of painting. Working primarily in watercolor, he was best known for his marine subjects, architectural views and cityscapes.

Lauder, and many other members of the Glasgow School, were pioneer painters of their day. Breaking away from the popular Salons they inserted heavy elements of Impressionism into their works and laid a secure foundation for the later Scottish Colorists of the early twentieth century.

Lauder was a popular exhibitor from 1890 and onward. He did spend many years living in Italy before returning to Scotland towards the end of his life in 1920, but showed his work at London galleries while he was on the Continent.
