Known for his highly stylized paintings, American artist Charley Harper captured the essence of his subjects with the fewest possible visual elements. He called this rare and delightful style "minimal realism." Born on a farm in West Virginia, Mr. Harper studied at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, where he later made his home. For more than sixty years, without computers, he captured color, shapes and movement. Mr. Harper uniquely simplified intricate and complex lines through his nature-oriented paintings.
