Art Brut

 

Tube Station, 1970. Willem Van Genk

Tours et animaux. Marco Raugei

sans titre. Carlo, 1967 (this artist had a last name and a first name but is only identified as “Carlo”)

Trains. Hidenori Motooka, 1978.

I bought some postcards, as we were not allowed to take photographs, and scanned in four of my favorite pieces. There were some other amazing pieces that hadn’t been printed in postcard format, otherwise I would have gotten more. These people were usually in psychiatric wards or carefully monitored in their homes, or altogether in prison. The museum was slightly creepy but mostly just amazing- a lot of the people hid their work from others, and a lot of their work wasn’t discovered until after they died.
