Charles Wysocki was an American painter (1928-2002), whose works depict a stylized version of American life of yesteryear. Wysocki came to appreciate a simpler, more rural life than that of the big city. His many trips to New England served to nurture his interest in early American Folk Art. As he said of his work, "I hope my paintings revive pleasant thoughts of order and security, much needed in this fast-paced world."
"In my paintings, I want to hit every emotion I can – from the sublime to the silly," Charles Wysocki said. He was remarkably successful in his endeavors, as a legion of fans and art collectors can attest. The love of life, with all its wit and wisdom, poetry and emotion, sights and sensations, is captured in his work. "There is a simple message in my work," Wysocki said, "and it is love."
