His life and works
Charles Allen Du Val, sometimes spelled duVal or Duval, (19 March 1810 - 14 June 1872), was a notable Victorian portrait painter, photographer, literary critic, illustrator and writer.
This website, which is the result of many years research by a number of people, is intended to provide an authoritative history of Charles Allen Du Val, his works, ancestors and descendants.
Any questions, comments and suggestions you might have are warmly welcomed.
Incidentally I have a good reason for being interested in Charles Allen Du Val - I am his great-great-grandson.
