Charles Harry Eaton (1850-1901)

Charles Harry Eaton (1850-1901)

Inspired by the Barbizon style of painting and devoted to the Detroit landscape for much of his career, Charles Harry Eaton was largely a self-taught artist who determinedly earned himself a national reputation. Raised in Akron, Ohio, Eaton moved to Detroit in 1867 and studied briefly under John Mix Stanley. The years of 1878 to 1880 found him momentarily in Holly, Michigan, followed by two years in Chicago, and nearly ten years in New York City. During the 1890s, the artist finally settled in Leonia, New Jersey, where he remained for the rest of his career.
