CHARLES CALLAHAN PERKINS (1823-1886), American artist and author, was born in Boston and educated at Harvard, subsequently studying art in Rome and Paris. Returning to Boston, he helped to found the Museum of Fine Arts, of which he was honorary director, and for many years he played a leading part in artistic circles as a cultured critic and writer. His chief publications were Tuscan Sculptors (1864) and Italian Sculptors (1868)—replaced in 1883 by The Historical Handbook of Italian Sculptors—Art in Education (187o), and Sepulchral Monuments in Italy (1885).
