Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007)
Winter (detail)

Charley Harper loved animals and nature but was quick to remind folks that he was an artist, not a naturalist. He used geometric shapes, patterns, and vivid colors to simplify nature’s complexities and bring out each critter’s personality—evidenced here by the chubby cheeks of a squirrel snacking at a winter birdfeeder.
