Charles Daniel Ward was born in Taunton and studied art at the RCA. He lived in Chelsea and later in Blewbury, Berks. He painted genre, landscapes, portraits and flowers. His wife Charlotte Blakeneney (Ward) was also a well-known artist who exhibited in London and at the Paris Salon. She was president of the Society of Women Artists, and friend of Dorothea Sharp and Helen Seddon, who together painted in the open air. Charles exhibited at the RA from 1898 to 1932 (41 works) including perhaps his most famous work ‘Progress of Spring,’ which was sold at Christies Nov. 1993 for £31,000 hammer. Charles also exhibited 86 works at the Royal society of painters in oils, and further examples at the royal society of British artists, and elsewhere. He is represented in public collections in the US and UK.
