Charles Oppenheimer

Charles Oppenheimer, whose mother was Scottish, was born in Manchester in 1875, where his family owned a mosaic manufacturing business.   He was enrolled at the Manchester School of Art where he studied design.  At art school he came under the influence of Walter Crane, a leading teacher, art theorist and member of the Arts and Crafts movement.


Oppenheimer’s first involvement with an artist’s colony was with the painters who visited Runswick Bay in the North East of England but it was an encounter with E. A. Taylor in Manchester which persuaded him that he should move to Kirkcudbright.  Taylor had recently married Jessie M King who had purchased the Green Gate in Kirkcudbright.


Oppenheimer and his wife Connie settled at 14 High Street, next door to E. A. Hornel at Broughton House, before moving in the late thirties to Woodlea the former home of the Kirkcudbright artists William Mouncey and subsequently William Robson. Charles Oppenheimer became a leading member of the local community becoming a member of the Town Council in 1913  and later serving as a special constable.  As well as painting Oppenheimer was  a keen golfer and fisherman, the epitome of the Kirkcudbright artist as depicted by his friend Dorothy L. Sayers, who rented the studio next to the Oppenheimers at 14a High Street.  The description of Water’s studio in The Five Red Herrings is the exact location of Oppenheimer’s own  studio.


Charles Oppenheimer spent over half a century recording the local natural and built environment, including a number of large canvases depicting the construction  of the dams for the Galloway Power scheme in the early nineteen thirties.  His railway posters also brought his work to the attention of the public at large.

Oppenheimer visited Italy and an exhibition of this work in Glasgow in 1913 brought him to the attention of the Scottish art critics.  He exhibited regularly both at the Royal Academy and Royal Scottish Academy, where he became a full member in 1934.  Towards the end of his life Charles Oppenheimer was elected Honorary President of the Harbour Cottage Fund, and fund raising began to save and restore the cottages which were opened as an art gallery in 1957 and which maintained the artistic heritage in the town of Kirkcudbright.
