The Charles Shoup Collection, the works of one of today's most celebrated artists. Americana, landscapes, or highly acclaimed historical scenes, he captures a moment in time on the canvas. Light and shadow are preserved...and memories are brought to life in a harmonic mixture of colors and emotions.
He began exhibiting at gallery’s in Washington, DC, Maryland, & Virginia 1974.
His work borrows heavily from the pictorial inheritance of Symbolism and Surrealism. There is always a poetic mystery and sense of menace, even in apparently journalistic work, such as The Boy in the Green Hat.
