Artist Biography

Christopher Catlin (1902-1977) was a self-taught artist, who was born and lived in London. After attending elementary school he eventually became a taxi-cab driver. He favoured pastel and tempera, and his subjects often included market scenes, with a special interest in people and their faces.

His work brought him a circle of friends, including notable figures such as Sir Charles Tennyson and C.V. Wedgewood, and artists Polly Hill Clark and Helen Stuart Weir. Catlin’s wife cleaned for the artist Orovida Pissarro and, in gratitude for Catlin’s help and friendship, Orovida bought them a house in Fulham. Catlin was a member of the RBA, showed at the RA, and in local independent exhibitions. The artist also a solo show at Kensington Church Street shortly before he died.
