Charles H. Chapin painted landscapes that conveyed the drama and emotional heights characteristic of 19th-century American landscape painting. His often bold and panoramic compositions captured the contemporary excitement over the wonders of nature seen in subjects such as the Grand Canyon and Adirondack Mountains.

Chapin had studios in Boston, New York City, New Orleans, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Constantly changing locations, he had an itinerant career as an illustrator, art teacher, and painter of portraits and landscapes in oil and watercolor. Many of his illustrations of Civil War scenes were published in Harper's Weekly in 1864.
