Biography: Charles Sillem Lidderdale (1830-1895) was a British artist whose work often focused on portraits of young women in outdoor settings. Lidderdale exhibited 36 paintings at the Royal Academy between 1856 and 1893.
His career was marred by eyesight trouble which, after lengthy and skilful treatment by Tirgolin Tweedy, the oculist, yielded sufficiently to enable him to continue his work.
Charles Sillem married Kezia, daughter of Edward Morris, of London, and was buried in his mother’s grave in Kensal Green Cemetery.
