His work is in private and public collections worldwide, he has hosted radio and television discussions on everything from painting to politics, he is a cultural icon, a Los Angeles bon vivant, a brilliant and an extraordinarily funny man. The fact that can get lost in this colorful shuffle is that Charles Bragg is among the most gifted American artists of the twentieth century. The Works represents the range of Bragg's oeuvre from cartoonish caricature to stunningly beautiful portrait. Featuring 130 color plates and 50 black-and-white reproductions, it offers a biographical overview, reveals Bragg's approaches to and techniques of painting, discusses his inspirations and motivations, his social and political views, and gives the reader a sense of his inexhaustible cunning and wit.
