William Charles Penn (1877–1968) British Painter

"William Charles Penn came to Liverpool early in the twentieth century and taught at Liverpool School of Art until the 1950s, influencing a huge number of students and painters.He became Merseyside's leading painter, staying for family reasons when it was widely considered that he could have achieved a national reputation had he moved to London."

  1. I am a descendant of William C Penn, but never had the good fortune to meet him, even though I was born in 1947 and he was alive until 1968. I have been looking to find his paintings that are for sale, but don't know where to look. I have been very impressed with what I have seen of his work on this site, and only wish I had his talent.
