Minimal realism was how wildlife artist Charley Harper defined his style. I don t count feathers, he said, I just count the wings. Born in rural West Virginia, Harper (1922 2007) developed an unmistakable style, capturing an animal s essence with geometric shapes and vivid colors. His work has been featured in many publications, including the two books from which this calendar s twelve images are selected: Beguiled by the Wild (1994) and Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life (2007).Size: 13 x 12 in.; opens to 13 x 24 in.
