Hello! This is Charlie Swerdlow, painter of all the artworks on this site. I created HistoryDepicted.com to share and promote my creations, market and sell prints, and connect with people around the world. Whether you’re interested in publishing, leasing, commissioning, or just connecting with a fellow lover of art and history, I’d love to hear from you!
A little about me: I studied Illustration and Art History at the Savannah College of Art and Design, and have worked as a freelance illustrator, fine artist, graphic designer, concept artist, and museum operative since graduating in 2014. I’m also a runner, poet, reader, and singer-guitarist in a sea shanty folk band called the Shank Painters. I particularly enjoy envisioning historic scenes, and works involving travel. My main personal project for the last few years has been the Travel Symphony series, in which I’ve combined many scenes into each elaborate composition, to form connections and juxtapositions, and reflect the way one memory links with another.
This site's main page contains my historic-themed and travel works, most of which are available as prints via the ‘Prints for Sale!’ link above. The ‘More Art’ link will take you to further images, including my graphic design and commercial projects. Please email me if you’d like an edition of anything not listed, or prints in a different form, and I’ll see what I can do! My contact information is below.
