    The younger brother of William Lionel Wyllie, Charles William Wyllie trained at Leigh's School of Art and at the Royal Academy Schools. He first exhibited at the RA in 1872. While his brother William established a strong reputation as a marine painter and etcher, Charles' output was more diverse; as well as river and coastal scenes, he painted narrative and landscape works such as The Old Mill, Boulogne, France, (Russel-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum, Bournemouth), and The Sirens (Hartlepool Museums and Heritage Service). Examples of his work are held in the collections of the National Maritime Museum and the Tate.
