Charles Altamont Doyle




"Lesser known father of the great Arthur Conan Doyle. scans from a sketchbook completed during his stay in a victorian mental asylum."

More scans from the sketchbook can be found in this flickr set.

I am a great fan of his brother, Richard Doyle, and am always on the look out for more of his work.

Thanks for the treat. I'd often read about his drawings but seen too few.

Thanks for posting. There are a bunch more great pictures in the linked photostream. I love artwork like this.

The first one reminds me of Schnackenberg (I suppose mostly it's the colors).

Thanks for highlighting him -- might have never discovered him otherwise!
