"I especially like to inject a touch of humor into my work. So much of art today tries to reach for the profound or is painted for shock value. I see life on the lighter side, in much simpler and more basic forms. I personally feel that art should be fun for the artist as well as the viewer. But I work hard at doing my very best to make each painting both as simple and as interesting as possible. It's difficult. I try. Children, bless their clear eyes, enjoy the simplicity in my work and this really thrills me each time. Art appreciation is not exclusively for adults. I am constantly surprised at how articulate youngsters are in expressing themselves, how clearly they see connections, both within the paintings and to life." -Charles Wysocki
In 1992 the Greenwich Workshop released Frederick the Literate by Charles Wysocki as a limited edition print. There were 6500 signed and numbered copies of Frederick the Literate. The issue price was $150 and it sold out in a matter of weeks! A tradition was born and there has been another Wysocki cat print just about every year since up to the most recent release Monty, Minding the Store.
