Charles Cajori was presented with the Jimmy Ernst Award in Art at the American Academy of Arts and Letters Ceremonial on Wednesday. In the citation that accompanied the award that august institution declared: “Charles Cajori is a painter of imagined figures and spaces which seem always to be caught in the act of defining pose and location. His masterful drawing is crucial in orchestrating the tension between figure and shape. Color is never descriptive, working more as a plastic counterpoint to drawing and combining with it to create images pulsating with energy and life. For several decades Cajori has pursued an ineffable ideal. His paintings are resolved but never finished — works of great beauty and distinction.”

This was an artcritical PIC in May 2009
