Charles Stuart Forbes

Charles Stuart Forbes


Nationality: American

Born in Geneva, Charles Stuart Forbes trained with Carolus-Duran in Paris, developing a painterly style of portraiture, and he exhibited at the official Salon and at the smaller Salon of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. While in Paris, Forbes befriended the American expatriate painter John Singer Sargent, and in 1881 the two men, together with fellow artists Ralph Curtis, Julian Pennington, and Julian Story, painted portraits of poet Robert Browning at the Palazzo Ca'Rezzonico in Venice. At this same time, Sargent also painted Forbes' portrait, which currently hangs in the Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery in San Marino, California.
