Théo van Rysselberghe (French) And More Theo Van Rysselberghe Paintings
This Belgian neo-impressionist painter is a great artist (bio). Check out for example the gorgeous colors and brush stokes in the Four Bathers or the Mill at Kelf.  He definitely on my list of favorite artists.  What's weird is that I never even heard of him before last week!

I really like this Australian figurative artist's use of color, composition and subject matter.  More images of his work are available here and some more recent works here.

Henry Darger and Realm of the Unreal
Henry Darger is the ultimate outsider of the Outsider Art Movement (Art Brut), which is the main theme in this issue.  Darger was a janitor who lived alone in his second floor room in Chicago, where he worked nights on his illustrated tale The Story of the Vivian Girls, which included 12 volumes and some 19,000 pages. The book is also known by the name Realms of the Unreal.  His fascinating work was discovered after his death by his landlord in 1973. Recently, a movie was made about Darger's life called In the Realms of the Unreal.  The movie trailers are available here.  Also, I have the movie in my Netflix queue.

Jean Dubuffet (bio) "coined the term Art Brut for artwork produced by non-professionals working outside aesthetic norms, such as art by mental patients, prisoners, and children".

Eugene Von Bruenchenhein
"Eugene Von Bruenchenhein (1910-1983) was a visionary artist who created a vast number of paintings, photographs and sculptural objects that overfilled his modest house in Milwaukee, a collection undiscovered until shortly after his death. He worked at a bakery during the day and privately made his obsessive art in virtual isolation, with the exception of his wife, Marie, and select relatives and friends."

His Beautiful Wife Marie Posing @1940-50

Elizabeth Huey
"Elizabeth Huey's newest paintings are inspired by her research into American asylums of the 19th century and fueled by her personal experiences."
