Charles Lees was born in 1800 in Cupar, Fifeshire, and began his artistic career as a pupil of Raeburn. With the exception of six months spent in Rome, Lees spent his entire working life in Scotland.
Lees painted principally true-to-life scenes of Scottish life and landscapes, although he is perhaps remembered mostly for his many depictions of sporting art. Charles Lees died in 1880.
