Wysocki, Charles, Ballantine, Betty


I feel the greatness and beauty of America, and in it an endless source of inspiration for my paintings. -Charles Wysocki In over 200 glorious full-color works, Charles Wysocki portrays the joy of Early America. Whether he is depicting a cozy New England bay or a busy Amish Valley, the artist mixes whimsy and warmth; his brush sets flags awave and spirits soaring, and his paintings-of the quilting bees, clambakes, country fairs, and one-room schoolhouses of bygone days-shine with gladness and innocence. Rejoicing in the hard work and quiet pleasures of nineteenth-century life, Wysocki fills his canvasses with quaint bridges, plowed fields, horses and sleighs. He delights in detail-"Caleb's Buggy Barn" shows carriagemakers involved in every aspect of their crucial trade, "Fawn Dell" finds farmers tending to the painstaking process of maple sugaring. An American Celebration is the first album of Wysocki's art. Packed with images of comfort, order, and promise, it is a memorable vision, a testament to the charm of small town and good neighbors and the resilience of Yankee ingenuity and pioneer pride. Text by Betty Ballantine embellishes the artist's sense of time and place, offering a further look into the lore, history, innovations, and accomplishments of our great country.Wysocki, Charles is the author of 'American Celebration: The Art of Charles Wysocki' with ISBN 9780894809422 and ISBN 0894809423.
