Charles Howard Johnson (1867 or 1868 – July 3, 1896) was an American illustrator and newspaper artist, best known for his sparse illustrations of the 1890 U.S. edition of The Princess by the English poet Alfred Lord Tennyson.
Little is known of Johnson's life. He has been reported[according to whom?] born in Kansas City, and came to New York City in about 1889 after studying art for a year in Cincinnati, Ohio. He worked for a number of magazines including Life, Truth, Munsey's Magazine, and on some of the daily newspapers. He illustrated more than ten books.
He was particularly effective in decorative work, often making the pictures fantastical.
He was engaged to be married to the actress Elita Proctor Otis, before he died at his apartment in the Union Square Hotel of brain fever on July 3, 1896, after an illness of ten days. His wife had died two years earlier, with whom he had a daughter
