Naïve Art. (1900)

“Naive” art and painting are by definition does it non professionals : craftsmen with fertile imagination, autodidacts and “spare-time painters”. Wilhelm Ude, one of the discoverers of naive painting in France could qualify artists such as Henri Rousseau, Séraphine Louis, Louis Vivin, Camille Bombois, Domenica-Paul Peyronnet, Rene Rimbert, Adolf Dietrich or Andre Bauchant of “painters of the crowned heart”, expression which it opposes to that “popular Masters of reality”. Indeed these artists are often far away from the real bus the naive artist create before very for itself and express without compromise its realistic or poetic vision and its personal phantasms.The naïve art especially took its rise since the beginning of the XXe century. It is often the fact of pensioners, sexagenerians or septuagénaires with the generous spirit and who can sometimes give to lessons of sincerity to “truths” painters. It is necessary amongst other things to quote the naïve painters of the school of Hlebine, the fabrics of Ivan Generalic, the fantastic palate of Ferdinand Cheval, the painting of American Grandma Moses, Henri Trouillard… The naïve art was rediscovered by André Breton and by Jean Dubuffet, it has today its place on the cultural scene and the market of art. It marked many currents of the modern art, metaphysical painting with fantastic realism and surrealism and painters like Paul Klee or Marc Chagall.
