Charles Cagle was born in 1907 in Beersheba Springs, Tennessee. After graduating from Hume-Fogg High School, Cagle went on to do the unprecedented: He studied art simultaneously at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia and the Barnes Foundation in Merion, Pennsylvania.
Over the years, Cagle’s work would be displayed at the Parthenon and the Centennial Club, as well as renowned New York galleries such as Tricker Gallery and Carnegie Hall Gallery. He also served his country during WWII, earning five battle stars and the French Legion of Honor. Always invested in teaching, he instituted the Charles Cagle Summer Painting Group studio in Vermont, which met for a total of twenty-seven summers before Cagle’s death in 1968.
For this six-month exhibition, the Tennessee State Museum has gathered thirty-three paintings from a variety of private collections. The first recorded painting of Charles Cagle takes a predominant spot, framed against the blown-up photograph of him in his school days. The rendering of a ship on rocky waters was a gift to his homeroom teacher when Cagle was but eighteen years old. From here the gallery unfolds, taking a unique approach to the placement of each piece.
Landscapes are arranged together, portraits together, and still lifes together. Within each grouping, the order is chronological, reflecting a dramatic change over the years in Cagle’s technique, talent, and emphasis.
