For those of us who live far from Brandywine Cottage and the local Vancouver galleries that feature the beautiful artwork of Charles van Sandwyk, I’m experimenting with creating an online gallery for Charles’ works. I remain indebted to private collectors (particularly John P) who have generously shared precious items from their collections for the denizens of the Internets to enjoy.
If you click on any of the images in the gallery below, you will be able to access further information and embiggen it for your enjoyment. Of necessity, the photos are of a low enough quality to ensure the pages load with reasonable speed – they cannot do the originals justice and if you have the funds, I recommend seeking out some of Charles’ artworks as an investment for yourself.
The artworks are split across several ‘rooms’, which are linked below. So please pour a snifter of brandy, pull up a comfortable chair, hark back to the golden age of illustration, and enjoy a tour through this virtual gallery of one of the finest artists of our time. (Also, if you enjoy the gallery, let me know in the comments below as I can expand it to include a few more rooms…)
