Self-Taught Artists of the Twentieth Century: An American Anthology

by

Self-Taught Artists of the Twentieth Century: An American Anthology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today the work of so-called "outsider" artists is receiving unprecedented attention. Now, to coincide with a major traveling exhibition organized by the Museum of American Folk Art in New York and opening at the Philadelphia Museum of Art this spring, comes a major critical appraisal of America's 20th century self-taught artists. Including essays by respected art historians and critics such as Arthur Danto, Maurice Berger and Gerald Davis, as well as 150 colorful images, this is an invaluable history, of modern folk art. While some of these artists have received critical recognition, others remain virtually unknown, following their muse regardless. They hail from places across the country and represent a cross-section of society, and their are reflects their diversity in its media, subjects, and consciousness of artistic movements. Self-Taught Artists of the Twentieth Century is a worthy addition to any art library and a fascinating perspective on artists working outside the conventional art scene.
