Here is the picture
of the painting
in the above article.
It was done in different
lights at different
times of the day.
Its title is
"Morning in an Orchard Corner"
It was painted in 1891.

We recently found images of
some of his early work.
This is one I found in the internet.
Its title is "Poppy Fields".
It was done in 1890
Its dimensions are 16.5 x 12.8

This is a painting done for
and printed in the
Sunday, July 12, 1933
issue of the Pittsburgh
Sun Telegraph in the
Gravure Section.
Titled "Champion".
It's of Helen Wills, the noted
women's tennis champion
from 1923 to 1929.

This painting was commissioned by the subject.
It was painted several times because the lady thought
it looked too much like her.
I can only guess that she thought that
Charles could improve the way she
would look in the portrait.

This work is of a farm road off Old Kummer Road
that is now a paved road into a subdivision.
The subject must have been one of
Charles' favorite spots since we have seen
it from every angle and
in every season.
It is one of my favorites too.


Charles was my
Great Grandfather

       In January 1924 Charles and his wife Marceline to Amercia on the SteamShip La Savoie.
       the trip had to be miserable from the look of the pictures they took.
       1924 Crossing               1924 Crossing              1924 Crossing          1924 Crossing
       They traveled to Belleville Il. to see his mother and brother. Then traveled to 
       Meckling South Dakota to visit their son. Then he went to Oceola Missouri to see 
       his daughter Yvonne and two Grandchildren Marguerite and Albert.         
       Now the war has been over a few years and his visiting was over it was time he made a
       decision. While working in Paris as an artist Charles met Mr. Thomas M. Marshall Jr. 
       An American who was happy to meet another American who knew Paris so well and upon seeing
       Charles skills became enamored with his work.  Mr. Marshall left Charles an open invitation
       to visit if he ever came to Pennsylvania. In the mid 20's Charles took him up on his 
       invitation and while staying with Thomas, Charles was urged to stay and live on 
       Mr. Marshall's farm in the McCandless Township.  Mr. Marshall offered the use of a small 
       house on the estate. Charles told Mr. Marshall he would prefer to stay in a log cabin that
       stood on the property.  Mr. Marshall accommodated his wishes after Charles explained 
       that the rustic setting would inspire him in his craft. So Charles and his wife moved 
       into the cabin. It is located about 20 miles North of Pittsburgh, Pa. on the south side
       of North Park. Charles daughter Yvonne her husband Albert and their children traveled to
       North Park and atayed for about a year. The picture below was taken on that visit. 
       Try to imagine driving that car from Missouri to Pennsylvania in 1925.
	 Charles built a studio behind the cabin and started painting the countryside.
	 He had fallen in love with the area when he traveled through there as a young
	 artist on his way to study in France. He traveled through Harpers Ferry and north through 
	 Pittsburgh then on to New York. Now with new life and new inspiration Charles was 
	 walking the countryside painting his landscapes. The hazy air, rolling hills and rustic 
	 buildings all gave a beautiful perfection that held years of work for the artist now in his 
	 own country. Mr. Marshall being a Judge in Pittsburgh got the word around and soon 
	 Charles was painting portraits of many distinguished people ,Jurists, industrialists, social 
	 leaders, etc. He painted the Hon. Charles H. Kline Mayor of Pittsburgh, 
	 Rev. Dr. C. E. Macartney, E. W. Smith Attorney and President of the Bar Association. 
	 And was considered one of the best portraits he had done. It hangs in the City County 
	 Building. Charles talent was being recognized in this country. He painted several notable 
	 woman of the time while in Pittsburgh. They were sports stars, actresses and you can see 
	 them below.

	    Charles Thomas Heberer has artwork spread across Europe and the United States.
	    For the sake of those who haven't had the opportunity to see his paintings, 
	    I created these pages to share all the pictures I have come 
	    across. I have spent a great deal of time trying to get pictures of as many
	    paintings as I can find. To all the people that have sent me pictures of the
	    paintings I would like to say thank you very very much!
