OP PARALLEL VISIONS: MODERN ARTISTS AND OUTSIDER ART. Maurice Tuchman et al. Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 1992. Published in association with Princeton University Press. 336 pp. with 263 ills. (122 col.). 31 x 24 cm. LC 92-11360 ISBN 0691000395 In English.
A major study of the works produced by self-taught, often psychologically disturbed artists and their impact on 20th-century art, this ambitious catalogue presents a diverse array of paintings, drawings, sculptures and constructions by Adolf Wolfli, Gaston Chaissac, Louis Soutter, Ferdinand Cheval and other notable outsider artists along with works by such prominent figures as Klee, Ernst, Dubuffet, Breton, Rainer, Appel, Baselitz and Dine who have shared an interest in visionary forms of expression. Prefaced by biographical profiles of the 34 featured outsider artists, ten well-illustrated essays examine the influence of "marginalized" art on movements ranging from German Expressionism to Chicago Imagism, providing detailed explications of many works and discussions of such topics as the critical reception of outsider art and the theories of Freud concerning creativity and madness.
