Born in 1901, in Cheshire, England, artist Charles Frederick Tunnicliffe lived, worked, and practiced drawing on his family farm until, at age 19, he received a scholarship from London's Royal College of Art. In addition to his academic paintings, Charles Tunnicliffe made and sold etchings to supplement his grant. Upon graduation, the Royal College of Art awarded Tunnicliffe with another scholarship to study at its etching and engraving school where he earned a diploma in 1923.
After years of working as a commercial artist, Charles Frederick Tunnicliffe illustrated a children's book about an otter; the success of which propelled him to widespread appeal. Charles Tunnicliffe's artwork for sale included paintings in calendars, cards, and other children's books, though most remember him for his animal illustrations. Indeed, a friend of Tunnicliffe remarked that the "whole of nature absorbed him." You can find your future collectible animal paintings for sale at Invaluable.
