Charles Haigh-Wood studied at Manchester College of Art and later entered the Royal Academy Schools in London. In 1877 he had his first painting shown at the Royal Academy Exhibition and quickly built a reputation as fine subject painter, typically young society beauties in bucolic landscapes and drawing room scenes.

Between 1874 and 1916 he exhibited 42 paintings at the Royal Academy and various others with the Royal Society of British Artists. Today, his work can be found in the collection of Manchester City Art Gallery and the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.
