The art features a celebration of the historical richness of the American past, taking its inspiration from the pastoral moods of the small towns. 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. His father, Charles Sr., a Polish immigrant who worked on the assembly line at Ford Motor Co. for over 35 years, was not thrilled about his son’s artist aspirations. Most of the encouragement came from his mother, Mary. Charles attended Cass Technical High School and focused on its art program. For a time, he worked as an apprentice in Detroit art studios.
