Charles Bragg (1931 - )
Considered the foremost social satire artist in America , Charles Bragg is highly acclaimed for his cryptic and humorous portraits. Bragg is a spiritual descendent of Bosch, Brueghel and Daumier, all of whom lampooned the foolish elements of society. H.L. Menken said, "Nothing can come out of an artist that is not in the man." Charles Bragg is a case in point, combining a strong sense of humor with thought-provoking opinions.
Charles Bragg is a devoted student of the human race. As one of the master observers of contemporary times, he and his little figures have etched their way into the American heart. His is a unique perspective on the human comedy-it is the reassuring viewpoint of the fellow traveler. If you recognize yourself in a painted expression on one of his character's faces-a look so precisely rendered that your empathy is spontaneous and unconscious-it is because Bragg has been to the mountain and suffered that big of tangled reality himself. He is the constant observer, but never the innocent bystander.
