Hide Profile

Charles Conder was born in Tottenham, and sent to Sydney by his father as a way of discouraging his interest in art. In Australia, he fell in with an artistic circle, and began taking courses and painting in earnest. Although he later returned to Europe, his Australian work remained among his most vibrant and important.
