Summary
Organized by the Museum of American Folk Art, this unique collection of paintings, sculpture, collages, and drawings celebrates the remarkable work of America's self-taught artists. Insightful profiles of the life and work of each of the featured artists by curators, critics, scholars, and artists with a broad range of perspectives are accompanied by major essays by distinguished scholars Arthur C. Danto, Maurice Berger, and Gerald L. Davis. Together, with the curators, Elsa Longhauser and Harald Szeemann, they bring a fresh understanding to the work of these thirty-two gifted artists
