Charles Bragg in the Louvre

The one-and-only Charles Bragg is able to seamlessly infuse into his artwork his thoughtful yet humorous look at the world. He’s a great storyteller in life and on canvas, and a visit with Charles is always a treat. You have to keep on your toes, because you’re never quite sure if he’s pulling your leg. His art is all at once comical and profound and his style is intricate, skilled and identifiably Charles Bragg.

    Wow.. what a great story by one of today’s great artist.
    I’ve always loved Bragg’s works As a retired photographer and
    painter he’s been a great inspiration not only to my self but hundreds if not thousands of
    artist around the globe. I don’t think in my life time I’ll ever get to see my work in any of the museums
    his works are hanging, let alone the Louvre
    -perhaps in 50-75yrs – as art does change over time. Bless you Charles for everything you have given
    to the world.. GS

    I have been a fan of Charles Bragg for many years, have acquired many pieces, and especially love his bronzes. My favourite little graphic of his is “in the beginning there were mistakes”. The cleverness, and poignancy that goes with his work is at least equal to the art itself.
