Born in Philadelphia, Carles studied at PAFA from 1900-1907, then spent several years in France from 1907-1910, where he was influenced by the Modernist work of CĂ©zanne and Matisse. Upon his return to the U.S., he exhibited at the New York Armory Show in 1913, and he taught at PAFA from 1917-1928.

Harlequin was a popular Post-Impressionist subject. Carles’ drawing of
Harlequin is fairly academic and was likely executed prior to his sojourn in France. It does not indicate the Modernist turn his work would later take. After his death, his work was featured in major exhibition retrospectives in Philadelphia and New York.
