"Heartland" is the bright and beautiful chronicle of Charles Wysocki's love affair with life and with Americana. Bursting with his distinctive, highly detailed, full-color paintings, drawings, sketches, and photographs from his own collection--and embellished by his own verse--"Heartland" will be a true source of joy and inspiration to his many fans.
Like "An American Celebration, " his best-selling 1985 book, "Heartland" presents a warm and romantic view of the hard work and quiet pleasures of nineteenth-century American life. But "Heartland" goes beyond that volume in presenting the artist's creative world--the sources of his inspiration.
"There is a simple message in my work," Charles Wysocki has always said, "and it is love." As shown within the pages of "Heartland, " that love infuses all his work. More than an art book, "Heartland" is the personal chronicle of Wysocki's unique vision. It is a treasure to cherish and appreciate for generations.
