Folk Art

A wonderful, beautiful french folk art link:


Folk art in France is defined somewhat diferently than in Canada. They use terms like "Art Naif" and "Art Brut". The term "Art naif " is very close to the term "Folk art" but it refers to a somewhat systematic style, an Artist with a formula, often an established formula or style used by others as well. Folk Art that doesn't follow a formula may be refered to as "Art Brut" but that term also include what we here call "Outsider Art" so it's almost the same but not quite. Did I fry your noodles yet? ...I was trying!

a favorite artist from that site:
delish isn't it?
