Charles Edward Conder¹ (1868-1909) British

Charles Edward Conder was born in Tottenhan (which is North London) on October 24th, 1868. He was an English-born painter. Mr. Conder spent several years as a young child in India before the death of his mother and a subsequent education in an English boarding school. He was than sent to Sydney in 1884 in an attempt by his father to discourage him from his artworks, he initially worked as a surveyor in country New South Wales, but by 1886 he begun lessons and had joined the local art society and was a key figure in the Heidelberg School Style of Art, arguably of a distinctively Australian tradition in Western Art. The name of Heidelberg School was an Australian art movement of the late 19th century. It refers to the rural area of near Melbourne where practitioners of the style found their subjects, though usage expanded to cover other Australian artist working in similar areas. The core group painted there on several occasions at "artist's camps" in the late 1880's and early 1890's.  Mr. Conder met Tom Roberts (1856-1931) in 1888; he decided to move to Melbourne. Short of cash, the attractive Mr. Conder apparently paid off his landlady by physical means, catching syphilis in the process, which was to plague the later years of his life. In the short period of two years worked with the other members of the school and produced a number of famous works, including "Under the Southern Sun". This painting clearly shows the burning sunlight and desolation that can be inflicted by an Australian drought. Mr. Conder left Australia in 1890, and spent the rest of his life in Europe, mainly in England, but visiting France on many times. His art was better received in England than in France. In 1892, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec painted his portrait, a portrait that now hangs in the National Gallery of Australia. He continued to paint, but his output was severely affected by continual poor health, including paralysis and a bout of delirium tremens. Mr. Conder married a wealthy widow, Stella Maris Bradford in 1901, giving him financial security. His latter works are not nearly as well critically-regarded as his earlier Australian paintings. Mr. Conder spent the last year of his life in a sanitarium before dying from tertiary syphilis on February 9th, 1909. During the time of his death, Mr. Conder's work was rated highly by many notable artists, such as Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) and Edgar Degas (1834-1914). One of the large collectors of his works is held by the National Gallery of Victoria, located in Melbourne, Australia. The National Gallery of Victoria was founded in 1861; it is the oldest and the largest public art gallery in Australia.
