Charles Schorre was born in Cuero, Texas. In 1948, he received a BFA degree from The University of Texas at Austin and moved to Houston shortly thereafter. Schorre became an instructor at the Museum School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston in 1949 and taught until 1955. Later, he served as an Assistant Professor of Fine Art at Rice University from 1960 to 1972. Schorre is most known for wildly expressive canvases, which are often large, abstract, and painted in bright colors that seem to bleed together.
