EDDIE ARNING (American, 1898п1993)

"Woman Walking Uphill", ca. 1970; Oil pastel on paper; 25 1/2" x 19 1/2"; Provenance: Hill Gallery, Michigan; Self-taught, inspired by magazine illustrations, Eddie Arningуs work is boldly colored, geometric and narrative in style. Raised in a German speaking community in Texas, Arning had a history of mental illness and spent three decades in a series of institutions where his drawing was often encouraged. He was a prolific artist until 1973, when, forced to leave his favorite facility for "bad conduct", he stopped drawing. Although not as widely known as some other Outsider artists, Arning is an important name within the field and is included in the foremost folk art collections.
