New Framed Prints at SYW — Artist Charles Wysocki

Friday, October 12th, 2012

At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, we are pleased to now have a fine art selection from the talented artist, Charles Wysocki. For the Holiday 2012 Catalog we have added two more prints from Charles; well-known pieces by the those who are familiar with his work.

Pictured here to the left is the whimsical, Frederick the Literate Print. Frederick the cat lazily stretches out on a bookshelf after a long day of reading some of his favorite novels; such as ‘A Tale of Two Kitties.’ Any cat lover or fan of Charles Wysocki will enjoy making note of all the details in the print, including reading some of the feline themed titles. This would be a clever print to hang in a home office or study. Also new this season, is the beautiful Cape Cod Christmas Print, shown below. Carolers, ice skaters and reindeer-drawn sleigh rides, are just some of the activities you’ll find amongst the hustle and bustle of our Cape Cod Christmas Print. You can see the beauty of Cape Cod Bay in the distance as the full moon hovers over town this Christmas holiday. Both of these framed prints have a textured finish and are proudly made in the USA.

About the Artist

Born in Detroit, Michigan in 1928, Charles was actually inspired to be an artist from a very young age. While his father who worked at Ford Motor Co. was more hesitant in his support, Charles’s mother fully backed his artistic ventures. After a two year tour of duty in the U.S. Army, Charles was excited to begin his studies at the Art Center in Los Angeles, California (now in Pasadena). Completing a major in advertising illustration and design, in 1955 he joined the staff at McNamera Brothers, based in Detroit. Mr. Wysocki grew restless of being away from the west coast however, and in 1959 he and three other artists formed the advertising agency, Group West. His career as a freelance artist had never been better, and commercial artwork was his primary focus.

While living and working in Los Angeles, he received numerous awards, and also met his wife, Elizabeth. Elizabeth had grown up on a farm, and Charles became instantly drawn to the simplicity and American values instilled in such a lifestyle; this is considered by his family to be a turning point for Charles’s artistic style. During the 1960’s Charles and Elizabeth had three children, David, Millicent, and Matthew. Charles supported his family on the original paintings he sold.

Charles Wysocki received the highest medal of honor from the National Society Daughter’s of the American Revolution. In addition, he published two books, “An American Celebration” in 1985 and “Heartland” in 1993. Later into the 1990’s, he opened his own gallery in what was now the family’s hometown, Lake Arrowhead. Artwork he created towards the end of his life, is said by those who know him to be some of his best work, and all were made into canvas transfers or limited edition prints.

~ Consider a framed Charles Wysocki print for a gift idea this holiday season; a friend or family member will surely treasure the art for years to come.
