Dear Mr. Bragg,
My dear friend, Jill, recently passed away and I acquired her small collection of print and original artwork. One of the items I almost missed was still packaged between two pieces of cardboard! It is titled First Light and it’s a young woman with her head tilted to the left (as you look at the picture). It’s a blueish gray coloring. In pencil at the bottom left it says A/P then First Light, then it is signed Charles Lynn Bragg. Can you share more about this drawing and the year it was created? It is a lovely piece of work.
I am so sorry for Jill’s passing on.
As for the art, “First Light” is an etching, limited edition of 300 plus 30 AP (artist’s proof) and 30 PP (printer’s proof). There was also another limited edition pulled from this etched zinc plate in a “flesh” (Caucasion) color. I created the plate in 1988. The image is made from a drawing that I made from a photo shoot of a beautiful young girl named Leigh. There are two other limited editions from the same model, they are titled “Dawn” and “Morning”.
I hope you can enjoy the work that your friend/family member found to be precious enough to keep.
Hi my sister passed away 2 years ago. I found a framed print of yours with the papers certificate of authenticity. Title Childs Face in Shadow. its dated 8-25-2009. I researched this etching and found nothing about it. Is there a meaning to this picture?
Hello Chris, I hope your memories of your sister will be enough to comfort you. I am pretty sure I know which image you are asking about. The image is an etching made and printed in 1977 and part of a limited edition. The certificate of authenticity was signed in 2009 for that sale. The image is based on a photo I saw long ago. I made a drawing of it first and then an etching. It sounds like you have the etching. Is your piece signed and numbered or is it signed as an A/P, artist proof or something like that? I must admit that I can’t find the details of that limited edition but I remember that I made it along with other baby face images and they were all made in 1977 with edition size of 150.

Hi Mr. Bragg,
I have a 28” x 20” drawing (14 of 300) of a horse. It is from mid back of the horse forward with no legs. It comes from the left side of the canvas with the edge of the horse’s face 2/3 of the way across the page to the right. The horse is shades of white and grey with a flowing mane on a dark background. The shading is beautiful.
My dad bought it for me in either 1979 or 1980 in Detroit MI. I love this piece of art and get complements on it all the time.
What was your inspiration for this piece?
Hello Virginia. What you have is a limited edition continuous-tone positive-plate lithograph printed in six colors. A few separate and unique circumstances inspired this image. I had an opportunity to print with a master on a 1934 Heidelberg single plate lithographic press. I also had a new airbrush and a photographic book of horses by Robert Vavra. I made an airbrushed ink drawing on transparent mylar and photo-etched that drawing on to a lithographic plate and printed that in a warm dark brown. I made five more drawings and printed one on top of the other to build up the color and richness. It was technically difficult to make and even harder to explain here in just a few words but I hope your Dad was pleased with it and I am glad that you like it too. By the way, I made the print in Los Angeles but I was born in Detroit. Aloha, Chick Bragg
Hello, I have a Charles Lynn (chick) Bragg Limited Edition Circa 1060. It is titled; Charles Bragg Original Landscape Etching. #124/300. I have owned it for 38 years. It is a beautifully framed 24 x 36 piece that I have only found 1 other time in all my art searching engines. It is a Japanese Landscape with an elder walking by with a bird on his shoulder.
Hello Lynn, the artwork you have is called MYSTICAL FANATSY and it is a continuous-tone, positive plate lithograph. I was studying “oriental brush painting techniques” at UCLA at the time, which, in part, inspired that image. Thanks for being a fan! Happy Holidays and good luck.
