Later Victorian Portraits Catalogue
Charles Haslewood Shannon (1863-1937), Painter and lithographer
Tall in stature and fair in complexion, Shannon had a ‘ruddy boyish face like a countryman’s, with blue eyes and fair lashes’.  Temperamentally equable, he was described as having an ‘extreme gentleness of manner’ and being so quiet and reserved that ‘in a large gathering his low voice and modest manner kept him in the background’.  According to Oscar Wilde, Shannon was ‘like a marigold’, in contrast to Ricketts, ‘like an orchid’.
