Charles Cain was an important English painter, watercolourist and drypoint engraver who first became known for his art of World War One. Shortly after the end of the war the Imperial War Museum purchased thirty of his drawings. He created his first published engraving in 1921. Mainly self-taught, he exhibited his art at both the Royal Academy and the Paris Salon. During the 1920’s and 1930’s, Charles W. Cain produced seventy-four original etchings and engravings, all published in London by Greatorex. The large majority of his prints deal with scenes in Iraq, Persia, Indian and Burma and he developed a strong reputation as a major Orientalist printmaker. Today, a large collection of Charles Cain’s drypoints will be found at the British Museum, London.
