Charles Haslewood Shannon, 1865–1937, English portrait and figure painter, etcher, and lithographer. He was an aesthete and lifelong companion of fellow artist Charles Ricketts, who influenced Hazelwood artistically; the two collaborated on the Vale Press and The Dial. Among his paintings, which were strongly influenced by the 16th-century Venetian style, are The Bunch of Grapes and The Lady with the Green Fan (both in the Dublin Municipal Gallery) and Study in Gray (Munich Gallery). His etchings also show a strong Venetian influence.
