Charles H. Huiest (1854-1910)
Charles H. Huiest was born in New York City in 1854 of Franco-Germanic parentage. His father painted military scenes while his mother was an art teacher. He exhibited an interest in both art and the theater at a young age and went to Chicago to study both professions. Returning to New York City, Charles worked for a Mr. Morgan who painted scenery at the Bowery Theater and worked for the Kiralfy Brothers on scenic effects along with many famous scenic artists for the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. Back in New York, he painted the entire interior of the French Theater and Excelsior Theater. Huiest moved to Troy, NY, in 1885 and painted scenery at Rand’s Hall and the Griswold Opera House. He also painted large scenic billboards, which were a new advertising venue at the time. He produced scenery in Albany, Brainbridge and Peterburgh, NY; Bridport and South Londonderry, VT; Wilmot, NH and Columbia Falls, ME. His work is considered as good as the larger scenic studios in Boston, New York, or Chicago. The “View of the Rhine” was one of his favorite subjects, along with Dunluce Castle in Ireland and more generic rural scenes. He died of a stroke from over exertion at his studio at his home in Lansingburgh, NY, a suburb of Troy. Advertisements dating between 1885 and the early 1890’s state he was “The only Professional Scenic Artist in Northern New York” , “Scenery for Church and Parlor Entertainments”, “For Theaters, Opera Houses, Halls, Church and School Entertainments, Fairs, Private Theatricals, Etc.” and “Pictorial Sign Advertising. Signs on All Roads.”
