Charles Houghton Howard

Charles Houghton Howard was one of the vanguards of American artists who introduced European surrealism and biomorphic expressionism into the U.S. art world. His work is not only a surrealistic representation of the mind’s journey into the unconscious, but also an exploration of the sensing and feeling of self. Born on January 2, 1899 in Montclair, New Jersey, Howard was the third son of a prominent family of architects, painters, and sculptors.
