The Art of Charles Wysocki

About Charles Wysocki

“In my paintings, I want to hit every emotion I can – from the sublime to the silly,”

- Charles Wysocki

 


1928–2002

Charles M. Wysocki,  (1928–2002)   works depict a stylized version of American life of yesteryear. While some of his works show horseless carriages, most depict the horse and buggy era.  Charles M. Wysocki,  was born in Detroit, Michigan.  He studied art at Cass Technical High School in Detroit .  In 1950 while working in local art studios, he was drafted into the Army and spent his two-year hitch in West Germany. more

REMINGTON THE HORTICULTURIST

Remington is named for Frederic Remington and he's a very playful, red cat. He is always showing his appreciation for his board by bringing things, often-times a lizard. He is also a lover of flowers and might be be called a "garden cat." Here he is sleeping in a box full of Shaker's Seeds packets surrounded by some of the most amazing contraptions and concoctions any cat could imagine . . . . He is in the gardener's shed among every implement, many of which only Rube Goldberg might use. They have trigger mechanisms and gauges and things like that. Take one look into Remington's shed and you'll be captivated by the invention and imagination

Charles Wysokci - Another Year at Sea

click on the image to enlarge
 

Another Year At Sea

This is the heartfelt story of a woman who awaits her beloved captain who has been detained "Another Year at Sea." This sad news has come by mail as evidenced by the opened envelope lying on the stairs and the letter held loosely in her hand. One feels compelled to look out the window with her, knowing in our hearts that no white sails will appear on the dark and boundless horizon.

Charles Wysocki - Prairie Wind Flowers

Prairie Wind Flowers

This is Hammersmith Farms in Rhode Island. Strolling through the many beautiful gardens with the assorted variations, surrounding the estate was a delightful experience. The winds blowing the grass gently over the horse track pasture, as viewed from the huge but comfortable patio area, was a soothing and pleasant sensation, as well as a refreshing site. It was a natural for a painting - and so planning on a more humble scale, after the seed was planted, there eventually bloomed Prairie Wind Flowers

Charles Wysocki - Gay Head Light

click on the image to enlarge
 

Gay Head Light

This was on Martha's Vineyard at Gay Head. The house looked like something out of Teddy Roosevelt's time. All that's left now is the tower. It was on a nice, high perch but from some viewpoints, you could not see the sea. The children were inspired by Winslow Homer because he created them as down-to-earth and charming.

They are symbols of another time . . . monuments of a simpler, gentler ear . . . guardians and guideposts for safe passage. They are lighthouses and for years they have been staples of Charles Wysocki’s wonderful work.

“They are unique expressions of human creativity,” Wysocki has said. Physically, they represent triumphant solutions to complex engineering problems. Emotionally, they exemplify drama, rescue, poetry, romance, grandeur, nostalgia and artistry.”

Belly Warmers

Come in out of the cold into the happy glow of Charles Wysocki’s Belly Warmers. In this charming seaside scene, a ship has found a ship has found a snug berth in the harbor and travelers have found a bellywarming oyster stew at the Fog Bank Cafe. Bright against the soft white snow is a red Cardinal and one window of the cafe beckons with a golden light. But where is the warmest spot of all? Cast your eyes up to the cafe's roof and there you will find three seagulls who are in on the secret!

Charles Wysocki - Carver Coggins

Carver Coggins

"While vacationing on Cape Cod each year, we made it a point to stop off and spend some time with our friend who was a bird carver. His shop was perched on the edge of a marsh meadow and bird preserve, just outside Sandwich, Massachusetts. After many years of visiting, this painting came to fruition.

“Carver Coggins was a joy to paint and supplied me, as I was painting, with many happy memories of conversations with a fond acquaintance."

Clammers at Hodge's Horn

"In the early 60s, we took our first trip to Cape Cod. Driving along a sandy road to Provincetown, we stopped to walk the beaches in various towns and were surprised to see so many clam diggers looking for their evening meal.

"This cove was an interpretation of that scene¯except the horse and buggy was actually a car and small flat-bed trailer and the baskets were metal pails. Not as 'romantic' as depicted in the painting and neither was the broken down old clam shack that blossomed under my paint and brush into Hodge's Inn and Restaurant."

The Nantucket

About 30 miles from Wood's Hole, Massachusetts off the Cape Cod coast, is an island called Nantucket. This hotel is recreated with an old Victorian beauty and brings it to life in this image set at the beach . . . along with a crowd of fun-in-sun folks.

Charles Wysocki - Ethel The Gourmet

Ethel The Gourmet

A Feast for Foodies and Feline Fans

Foodies and Feline fans, are ready for your Puffed Mice, Spacatti and Moth Balls and a little Catfish Chowder? Well then, Ethel the Gourmet is a work of art for you! Ethel is snuggled in among her forty-plus favorite recipes, spices and snacks.

 Ethel the Gourmet is sister to Frederick the Literate. They are named after Fred and Ethel Mertz, the neighbours, friends and landlords of the Ricardo’s on the long-running television show I Love Lucy. These siblings may have come from the same litter, but clearly parted company on their way to adulthood. Whereas Frederick likes to nap in the library surrounded by the comfort of big ideas, Ethel has been busy in the kitchen. “No matter what happens,” said the artist Charles Wysocki, “Ethel is there. You bring the groceries home, she’s in the bag. You bring home clothes, she’s in the box. Whatever you bring home, she thinks it’s for her!”

Charles Wysocki  - Cape Cod Christmas

click on the image to enlarge
 

Cape Cod Christmas

 

 "I wanted to capture all the joy and charm of an old-fashioned Christmas. Quickly, my mind traveled to one of my favourite places, Cape Cod. I've visited the Cape in just about every season but winter. Using my experiences as reference, I wondered just what a Christmas on Cape Cod would look like. The result is this work that I hope will extend the feeling of the holiday season to all the seasons year 'round."

Charles Wysocki - Daddy's Coming Home

Daddy's Coming Home

 

“In my paintings, I want to hit every emotion I can―from the sublime to the silly,” Charles Wysocki said. The love of life, with all its wit and wisdom, poetry and emotion, sights and sensations, is captured in his paintings. “There is a simple message in my work,” Wysocki said, “and it is love.”

Daddy’s Coming Home tells a universal, yet deeply intimate and emotional story. We all have shared the same feeling, whether it is at the end of the day, the end of a business trip or even deployment overseas: the anticipation of seeing your father again.

Charles Wysocki - Frederick the Literate

click on the image to enlarge

 

Frederick the Literate
 

 

 These are every cat’s dream books from Field Guide to the Garbage Can to Delicious Field Mice I Have Known by international best-selling catty writers such as Thomas Cheshire and Kitty Mewpur. Frederick the Literate himself, exhausted from all this study, sleeps soundly, dreaming of the next big catch.

 

“We’re both cat lovers and this painting is dedicated to Frederick,” said the artist.” He was one of our favorite cats, if not the favorite. Fred was Mr. Wonderful but now he’s in the library in the sky. Although we’re all very dedicated and serious about our artwork, there is always time for humor. As soon as we came up with the idea, we knew what we had to do it. My wife Liz and I spent our breakfasts, lunches and dinners thinking about the book titles for this painting, including Cat-o Nine Tales, Rat Holes of the World and The Catebury Tales. This is one of those cases when after all these years of doing more subtle ‘story’ humor, all my more obvious puns were piling up. They had to come out!”

Charles Wysocki - Hickoryheaven Canal

click on the image to enlarge

 

Hickoryhaven Canal
 

This is in the upper Michigan in an area called Houghton Lake. Behind the cabin on the lake is a small canal which has frozen over - to the delight of the locals. Skating on the canal became a party from early morning until nightfall. People sang, played instruments, built fires, sold goodies and were obviously having a good time. It was a warm and pleasant sight.

Charles Wysocki - Salt Witch Bay

Salty Witch Bay

 

You can get out your map and look for Salty Witch Bay, but you won’t find it. It existed only in the mind of Charles Wysocki. “This particular painting was a supreme joy for me to create,” he said, “The size, the original measures 2 feet by 5 feet, was great fun to compose. This coastal community is typical of any that might be found in New England ¯ with a few of my personal ideas thrown in. It is all fantasy, including the name!”
