Charles Brady, 1926–1997

White Shoe Box1987

While Charles Brady was known to have painted a small number of landscapes, he is widely recognised as a painter of everyday or banal objects. He treated these objects with monumental grandeur and dignity, combining a spare, almost minimal aesthetic with an open, painterly approach. His work is understated and often humorous, usually presented on a modest scale that belies the sense of potential and mystery that it contains.
