LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Studio Vista , London ISBN 0289701686, 1972. Hardcover, 10" x 7¼", with dust jacket. Some ballpoint underlining to text (confined to 2 pages). Jacket flap blurb mounted to half-title page. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with stamps, stickers, barcode etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD clipped dust jacket. Red cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, 11 full-colour plates, over 60 b&w illustrations, bibliography, and index. This book examines perhaps the only art which can truly be described as inventive, the art engendered outside the influence of society: by those certified insane; by those who claim inspiration from the spirit world; and by the innocent, upon who the stamp of stereotyped culture has failed to make an impression. It challenges the accepted definitions of art, and the validity of the bases from which we judge it. Roger Cardinal was given access to important, hitherto unpublished material, including the archives of the Collection de l'Art Brut in Paris and the Prinzhorn Collection of psychotic art in Heidelberg. The author's uncompromising text is at once readable and authoritative. This untutored art has much to teach us.
