Biography:

Waltensperger began entering competitions at the Detroit Museum of Art School, until at the age of fourteen, he won the James E. Scripps Scholarship. This enabled him to spend two years studying in Paris at the Julien Academy with Benjamin Constant and Jean Paul Laurens. Charles returned to Detroit after his study to work as an illustrator and commercial artist, but his desire to paint took him back to Europe. His work is in the collections of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Louvre in Paris, and the Detroit Institute of Art.
