Join the legions of fans and collectors who have made the award-winning artwork of James C. Christensen a part of their lives through his paintings, sculpture, acclaimed books and limited editions. Experience this diverse and masterful body of work in Men and Angels, the single largest collection of Christensen’s paintings ever published. This comprehensive volume brims with over 300 paintings (including many favored classics), more than 100 unpublished treasures and a selection of whimsical and inspired sketches from his private sketchbooks.
From marriage to spiritual devotion to daily pet care, no object seems mundane after it has met Christensen’s inventive brush. Applying his celebrated eye for the fantastic to people, landscapes and creatures (both real and imagined) Christensen has created a rich and strangely familiar world that will take a lifetime to explore. Each painting presents a unique glimpse into the mind of the artist and holds up a mirror to the universal trials and triumphs of our own lives.Christensen’s career as an artist and art professor has equipped him to be a great communicator, or perhaps the fact that he is especially articulate for a visual artist has made him a master teacher. His wide-ranging commentary is as engaging as his art. The range of subject matter and style are a testament to the artist’s imagination, creativity and understanding of art history. Christensen’s drive to connect with the world weaves through his work like a ribbon, over mermaids, under saints and around hunchbacks. The paintings communicate on a level that is as personal as it is universal. Enter the realm of James C. Christensen’s Men and Angels, both human and divine!

Collector Book W/ L.E. Print
14" x 11"

A very few people will own one of only 150 Men and Angels Collector’s Editions. This autographed book comes slipcased in rich burgundy bookcloth with a gold-stamped, leather label, lined in acid-free paper and is accompanied by Little Wings, an original stone lithograph created by artist James C. Christensen especially for the Men and Angels Collectors Edition.
The title page of each volume is signed by the artist and is consecutively numbered to match the stone litho. The discerning collector will treasure the book and lithograph package from this extremely limited edition.
Little Wings

Each of heaven’s angels has her own unique set of wings. Some are grand and gleam in the sunlight reflected off the clouds; some are sleek and graceful; some are a riot of peacock colors. This little angel, new to her own heavenly gifts, seems a bit impatient with the speed of their growth. When will she be able to fly like the others, dancing in the light of heaven? This original stone lithograph was drawn by James C. Christensen, and produced by his long-time collaborator, Master Printer Wayne Kimball. The softly curling lines of Christensen’s impatient angel spring to life with Kimball’s exquisite lithography.

Introducing The Greenwich Workshop's New Century Artist Series showcasing contemporary art by some of today's best narrative painters in an affordable, high-quality format.

Dare we say that this lively collection of recent, vintage and never-before-published art by Christensen also makes an "imaginative" gift?

Inspired by the world's myths, fables, and tales of imagination, James C. Christensen's paintings reflect his philosophy that "believing is seeing." Christensen's beautiful -- if sometimes "curious-looking" -- works of art convey how important our imaginations really are, by inspiring laughter, creativity, and wonder.

James Christensen A Shakespeare Sketchbook

Artwork by James C. Christensen
Introduction by Fred Adams

Hear ye, hear ye, William Shakespeare wrote for you! (or at least your sixteenth century counterpart.) The playwright so reveared for his literary talent was also a businessman with an eye toward earning his fortune. He wanted the audience to laugh, cry, gasp... and buy seats at the next performance. His plays are filled with sword fights, fisti-cuffs, lowbrow hijinks, lewd references, faeries, ghosts, lunatics, monsters, murderers and mistaken identity.All of Shakespeare's stage has provided perfect fodder for the imagination of artist James C. Christensen whose wise and whimsical paintings and sketches will inspire you to go sit in a darkened theatre where Shakespeare's lovely language may steal up quietly and seduce you.The Bard and more than sixty-five of his dramatis personae all take bows in this unique visual tribute to Shakespeare. Filled with fun and countless discoveries for both the novice and the lifelong Shakespearean, the accompanying text has a performance of its own including the notes on the language, the myths, the murders and the eternal universality of the stories.
