Metropolitan Cathedral of Our Lady of Monterrey, Mexico
Metropolitan Cathedral of Our Lady of Monterrey, Mexico is the only known example of an oil painting by Charles while living in Mexico. He gifted it to his mother, then living with his sister and brother-in-law, where it held pride of place in their home for many years. The painting was passed to Charles’s goddaughter and niece, Adele Marie Crispin, who also cherished it. When asked why she was so fond of the painting, a friend suggested, “Is it because it was by Charlie?” Adele replied, “No, because it’s such a good painting.”
The painting is signed “C.O. Eames ’34” in the lower left corner.
