the art of social and political change
CHARLES KRAUSE/REPORTING FINE ART will show the work of artists who have sought to influence, or who have been influenced by, the great social and political upheavals of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Its mission is to increase awareness of their impact---and to change the way their art and photography is understood, appreciated and valued by museum curators, art historians, art critics and collectors throughout the world.
Charles Krause discovered the extraordinary power and often haunting beauty of the art of protest, propaganda and political change while covering the wars and revolutions of Central America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East for The Washington Post, CBS News and The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. His extensive personal collection ranges from the 18th to the 21st Century, and includes many of the artists whose work will be shown and represented by his new gallery.
