Born in Plymouth, the son of Charles Edward BRITTAN (Snr), the artist exhibited at the 1895 Opening Exhibition at Newlyn, showing Near Princetown, Dartmoor. His father was also his teacher, and their work was highly prized.
He lived mainly in Devon, at Yelverton (1907) and Horrobridge (1928), and later in North Wales, and is primarily known as a master painter of his beloved Dartmoor. Pages dedicated to his work can be found on the website devoted to 'Legendary Dartmoor', which also shows a range of his work.
