Biography: Born in Albany, New York, Charles Eaton became a Tonalist landscape painter much influenced by George Inness. His intimate, moody landscapes were known for subdued golden-brown hues and muted tonal harmonies, and the subject was often the landscape in late autumn, evening time, or winter. These paintings were groundbreaking because they were relatively small in scale and intimate countryside views, which was a departure from the generally popular panoramic, romanticized views of Hudson River School painters. A reclusive bachelor, Eaton maintained a studio in New York City, although he lived in Bloomfield, New Jersey. He painted many snow scenes in white and grey purple tones, but by 1900 was focusing more on the theme of the Berkshire pine forests of New York State. His work got less and less attention as modernism became pervasive, and he became increasingly alone and introspective. In October 2004, a retrospective of Eaton's paintings, "Intimate Landscapes: Charles Warren Eaton and the Tonalist Movement in American art, 1880-1920", was held at the de Menil Gallery at Groton School.
