Charles Bragg

For many years, Charles Bragg has been internationally acclaimed for his ability to capture the human comedy on canvas, in etchings and in sculpted pieces.

A modern day master at classical satire, he has a unique perspective and a very sardonic view of the world and its inhabitants in general, with a particular focus on the treatment of life’s troubles with lighthearted humor and sharpened wit. He particularly enjoys targeting the medical and legal professions, sports and political figures, the Creation and religion, and a category he fondly refers to as “little naughties”.

Considered by museums, art critics and collectors as one of America’s most gifted artists of the twentieth century, his technique is masterly, his subject matter profound. For every image that evinces a smile, there is another that is heart-stopping in its poignant commentary on the human condition. For every cartoonish caricature there is a stunningly beautiful portrait.

A populist as opposed to an esoteric artist, his work has frequently appeared in the New York Times and Playboy magazine and he is the author and/or subject of several books including The Absurd Work of Charles Bragg (published in 1980) Asuylum Earth (a compilation of short stories and illustrations, published in 1995) and Charles Bragg: The Works ! A Retrospective published in 1999, featuring 250 of his creative endeavors as well as stories and commentaries. Charles has also been the subject of a PBS documentary entitled Charles Bragg One of a Kind.

An incredible library of imagery is available for licensing on almost any subject imaginable--including his caricatures, his marvelous series of paintings “in the style of other famous artists”, and the “little naughties”!
