Charles W. Bartlett

Born in England in 1860, Bartlett was trained as a scientist but moved over to the arts in his early twenties. He first worked in watercolours, oils, and etching, but became acquainted with the Watanabe Print Shop in Tokyo on a trip through India and Asia when he was 45 years old. This shop published some of his designs from that trip the next year, and produced more in later years, including some of Hawaiian themes. He later settled in Hawaii, where he died in 1940.
