Biography of Jagger, Charles (English artist c. 1770-1827)
|Name||Jagger, Charles (English artist c. 1770-1827)|
|Biographical notes||Charles Jagger (c.1770-1827) was born in Bath.
With Roch (or Roche), Jagger was the leading Bath artist of his time. Unlike many of his competitors, he was born in Bath, and was one of the few artists to work in the city throughout his life. Little, however, is known of his life other than the fact that he worked in Green Street (1809) and later Milsom Street (1811-1821). He gained a reputation for particular accuracy in catching the appearance and personality of the sitter. There are four miniatures by Jagger in the Holburne Museum collection, including a portrait of Frederick Duke of York (M43) and the 1827 portrait of Sir William Holburne himself (M102), made shortly before Jagger's brief final illness.
