Treasures from the American Folk Art Museum
by Stacy C. Hollander and Valérie Rousseau
Fully illustrated catalog for the exhibition Self-Taught Genius: Treasures from the American Folk Art Museum, with a foreword by the Honorable Anne-Imelda Radice. Two curatorial essays consider the changing implications of “self-taught” in the United States, from a deeply entrenched and widespread culture of self-education in the early national period to its usage today to describe artists working outside the art historical canon.
