Description
This book, from a traveling exhibit by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, highlights 51 works created by self-taught artists since 1960, from the visual sermons of Howard Finster to anonymous works like an American flag whirligig. Whether in painting, sculpting, or weaving—and using such materials as tin roofing, model airplane enamel, marbles, bottle caps, and costume jewelry—each artist has forged an individual path rather than followed established conventions, displaying ingenuity, insight, wit, and reverence as they express their deeply felt experiences of the world around them.
