Description
Published to accompany an exhibition celebrating the gift of the Anthony Petullo Collection—the most extensive grouping of European self-taught art in America—to the Milwaukee Art Museum, this catalog presents some 130 works by self-taught and outsider artists. Along with multiple works by such artists as Henry Darger, Minnie Evans, Martín Ramírez, Friedrich Schröder-Sonnenstern, Bill Traylor, Alfred Wallis, Adolf Wölfli, and Anna Zemankova, the book includes a color thumbnail catalog of all 312 pieces in the collection, artist biographies, and more than 20 full-page and double-page (19 x 12 1/2 inches) detail views throughout. Several artists in the Petullo Collection are represented in great depth, allowing for a comprehensive examination of their work. British artist Scottie Wilson (1891–1972) started doodling on a tabletop in the back room of the shop he owned; he quit the business to devote all his time to his art, which included making tableware designs for the Royal Worcester Porcelain Company. Examples of both his drawings and his ceramics are included in the exhibition. Swiss artist Rosemarie Koczy (1939–2007), imprisoned with her family in a Nazi concentration camp during World War II, was driven by her experiences to create work in which the figures are barely able to emerge from their densely hatched backgrounds. Rural Texas native Eddie Arning (1898–1993) discovered his artistic ability later in life through an art class offered at his nursing home; magazine illustrations served as source material for his pastel drawings.
