Charles Warren Mundy, b. 1945, Indianapolis, Indiana.- Master Signature Member, Oil Painters of America- Master Status, American Impressionist Society- Signature Member, American Society of Marine ArtistsMundy’s work is displayed in the Indiana State Museum, Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame, The University of Louisville Hall of Fame, Indianapolis 500, as well as many private and corporate collections.
In 1994, Mundy left his successful career as an illustrator of sports figures and events to the more personally satisfying and challenging demands of painting en plein-air. Mundy immersed himself in the historic homeland of the Impressionists in his first painting trip to France in 1995. He captured the variable atmospherics of the traditional Impressionist haunts in an overcast morning, Pont Aven, Drizzling October Morning; the saturated sunset hues of Cote D'Azur, Port De Cannes, and the muted fog tones of Paris, Pont Neuf. These French works were the core of his first exhibition introducing his new style to the public and they were an unqualified success.
