Charles Oglesby Longabaugh (1885-1944) was born in Grayslake, Illinois and studied at Wheaton College and the Art Institute of Chicago. He travelled extensively, spending a considerable amount of time in Mexico and the American Southwest. His watercolors became wildly popular and were said to be sold “wet off the canvas,” such was the demand for his art.
