Game of Checkers Artist
Charles Drew Cahoon

Charles Drew Cahoon 1861-1951
Harwich, Massachusetts
  • Checkers artist Charles Cahoon was an American painter, printmaker, graphic artist and photographer from the late 19th and early 20th century.
  • Cahoon's subject matter entailed architecture, genre scenes, still life, landscapes, seascapes and winter scenes.

  • As an artist, Charles Cahoon became known for his carefully detailed, softly lit coastal seascape scenes and peaceful landscapes surrounding the Cape Cod area.

  • Artist Charles Cahoon developed a style reminiscent of Impressionism in his early works and later became a more representational in his realism.

  • Many of Charles' themes depicted the easy charm of fishing villages and scenes or weather beaten buildings in settings of soft light and mellow, warm tones.

  • Artist Charles painted his images in his studios in Boston and Harwich and may actually have created nearly three thousand works.

  • He was a popular and prosperous artist until the stock market crash of 1929 and although he continued to create his visions of the Eastern seaboard area. Checkers artist Charles Cahoon never quite recaptured the earlier success he had maintained.

  • The ‘Checker Game’ oil painting depicted a simple scene of an old man and a young boy involved in a quiet game at the checkerboard; the checkers players were shown within a woodworker’s shop engrossed in the next move of a checker piece.

  • The detailing of setting and rich, warm colors create a leisurely mood between the two players, yet cleared represented the genre moment displayed in the game of checkers.

  • Cahoon was called the ‘Village Artist’ during his day by the local newspaper but this title was meant as one of respect for his vision and talent; it was recognized that he created his motifs because of a deep love of art as well as a deep need to create the visions in his mind and heart.
"When Charles Drew Cahoon died in 1951 at the age of 90, he had no money and the same amount of fame---as most would define it. He left behind only a world of color on canvas---sharp eyed and loving visions of the land around him and of those things and people he cared for."
