Tuesday Tome - Charles Beck

Charles Beck is my new favorite Minnesota artist. Here are a couple of books I'd like to get someday. Leave a comment if you know of other books featuring his art.

A native of Fergus Falls, Minnesota, Charles Beck studied art at Concordia College in Moorhead and received his M.F.A. from Iowa State University in Iowa City. After being selected in 1950 for the group show, American Painting Today, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Beck studied at the University of Minnesota with Cameron Booth, where he was first introduced to woodblock prints. He has exhibited widely and is held in numerous collections.
