Charles Bosseron Chambers, a Catholic born in St. Louis in 1883, is known for his figurative work, mainly portraits or works with religious themes. Chambers was born in St. Louis; his father was an Irish captain in the British army and his mother was a member of an established French family in St. Louis. According to his niece, Chambers later adopted the middle name “Bosseron” because he felt his last name “too plain” to reflect his French heritage.

Like many American artists at the turn of the century, Chambers studied art abroad, first at the Berlin Royal Academy, where he spent six years studying with Louis Schultz. He later studied with Alois Hrdliczka at the Royal Academy in Vienna and with Johannes Schumacher in Dresden. In 1916, Chambers returned to the States and settled into a studio at Carnegie Studios in New York City. It was here that he painted the “Light of the World,” the most popular religious painting at the time. Chambers later illustrated Scribner Classics’ version of Sir Walter Scott’s Quentin Durward.
