Charles Henry Baskett


Landscape painter and etcher Charles Henry Baskett was born in Colchester, Essex, the son of still life painter and etcher Charles Edward Baskett (1845-1929). He is best known for his English coastal landscapes, and marine and river scenes. He exhibited 24 works at the RA between 1910 and 1930. He also exhibited at the RE, Paris Salon and elsewhere. He was elected ARE in 1911 and RE in 1918. Was Principal of Chelmsford School of Science and Art until his retirement in 1932. The British Museum holds a large number of his works. Although he was a significant etcher and aquatint engraver, he is somewhat neglected, and does not have the recognition he deserves today.
