Charles Shepard Chapman (June 2, 1879 – December 15, 1962) was an American painter, perhaps best remembered for his landscape of the Grand Canyon at the American Museum of Natural History.
Chapman was born in Morristown, New York. He studied at the New York School of Art. Chapman was under the mentor-ship of Walter Appleton Clark and William Merritt Chase.
Around 1910, Chapman moved to Leonia, New Jersey, where he maintained his home and studio and ran a school teaching illustration for a few years with Harvey Dunn. He was a teacher at the Art Students League school in Manhattan. Chapman also taught at the University of Wyoming. In the 1930’s and 40’s, Chapman also taught art intermittently in his hometown of Morristown.
