Biography from Boston Art Club:
This information comes from several clippings and articles on the artist compiled by the Boston Art Club.

Charles Logasa was born July 14, 1883 in Iowa.  He had some very early art training as a boy.  He moved to Washington, D.C. in the early 1900's to take a job with the U.S. government as a draftsman for the U.S. Geological Survey.   He mapped oil drilling sites in the Midwestern U.S.

In Washington, while employed by the U.S. government, Logasa decided to study painting at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.  There were four students at the College that became friends: Charles Logasa, Abraham Rattner, George Lohr, and John Zeron.  Of the four, Logasa had a steady income and rented a studio in Washington's downtown business district of F Street — a large room in the second floor rear.

Logasa's F Street studio was the place where a portion of the 1913 Armory Show was exhibited... for two months to the Washington public, March - June, 1916.

Charles Logasa and George Lohr staged the exhibition.  They brought 34 or 35 works from New York, among them two watercolors by Cezanne, two drawings and two oils by Picasso, a drawing and a watercolor by Matisse and two Braques.

Because the Corcoran was controlled by strict academic administrators, and because the content of the Armory Show was regarded as "wild," and "lunacy," after being viewed by these and other of the top Washington art critics, the four young painters who were known to use the Logasa studio were summarily expelled from the Corcoran's College.

Logasa left for Paris and spent the next year painting with Picasso and Matisse (two of the artists whose works had been exhibited at his own studio).  He returned during WWI, but then he returned to France during the 1920s.  He lived mostly at Villefranche, France during this period.   Logasa returned to New York during the 1930s Depression.

He exhibited frequently at the Contemporary Arts Gallery in NYC, at the Carnegie International Exhibition of 1931, the Brooklyn Museum, the Salons of America and for a time Logasa was the director of the Society of Independent Artists.  The Phillips Collection owns one of his works, Raking Leaves.
