Some things about Charles Wysocki’s life can be anticipated. For instance, he collects Early American toys, tobacco tins, folk art, clocks, crockery and books. High on the list of favorite places are Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard... and all of New England. Other things are a surprise: while he paints typically New England scenes, he lives in California. Yet one only has to look at his work to understand the person.

Born in Detroit in 1928, Wysocki enjoyed an active and happy boyhood, which seems reflected in the spirit of his work. Since early childhood, he had no other desire than to be an artist. After two years in the Army, Wysocki headed west to the Art Center School in Los Angeles, the city where he met his wife Liz, to whom he attributes much of his inspiration because she grew up on a farm. The aspects of her life that affected him were the basics: hard work, personal closeness and contentment with life’s "little things." Wysocki adds, "I hope my paintings revive pleasant thoughts of a bygone era and express a semblance of order and serenity that fills a need in this fast- changing world. I like to add a touch of humor into my work. I see life on the lighter side, in much simpler and more basic forms." Wysocki’s award-winning art is sought-after internationally and has been published in two books, American Celebration and Heartland.

The art of Charles Wysocki is a celebration of the historical richness of the American past, taking its inspiration from the pastoral moods of the small towns of New England and rural Pennsylvania. As he said of his work: "I hope my paintings revive pleasant thoughts of order and security, much needed in this fast-paced world."

Born in 1928 in Detroit, Charles Wysocki began drawing and painting at a very young age. In 1953, he studied art in Los Angeles at the Art Center School of Design. After a brief return to Detroit to do commercial art, Wysocki returned to California permanently, to live and paint. He enjoyed living in the west, but traveled frequently to Bucks County, rural Maine and Cape Cod to revisit the scenes which continued to inspire him. Wysocki died in Los Angeles on July 29, 2002.
