    Art Brokerage: Charles Hessemer American Artist: Charles graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago. He studied to become both a fine art artist and an advertising art director. When he was 18, and graduating from basic training at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center, he and five other recruits were sent to the Department of the Navy in Washington DC on special duty. Each man was assigned to a desk. His was empty, except for a lonely book in the bottom drawer. The book was entitled "How to Draw the Figure." This was not dumb luck. He will tell you the book was waiting for him. An act of Divine Providence. The book was a guided missile landing in his hands. Within the week, Hessemer was enrolled in the Corcoran Gallery of Art, he had finally found himself. Three years later, he returned to his home in Jackson, Michigan, a town with no future, for itself or for anyone with talent who chose to stay there. There he continued his pursuit of a career by enrolling in the Famous Artists correspondents course published in Westport, Connecticut. Entering multiple categories in the Jackson County Fair, he was awarded blue ribbons on every entry, and an invitation to visit the judge was attached to a painting. He does not use his knife for superficial effects, as do the many Mediterranean resort painters, or the painters who use the palette knife on a brush painting just for superficial knife effects, or those who paint just to sell, and amazingly, do sell. He has been likened to Emily Dickinson, The Moth of Amherst, who is considered to be one of the most important poets in American history. Dickinson wrote her poems in solitude, rarely seen in public. She wrote Eighteen hundred poems, but fewer than a dozen were published in her lifetime. Listings wanted.
