Outsider Art – Art Brut
The term Outsider Art was first used by art critic Roger Cardinal as an English synonym for Art Brut, Raw Art or Rough Art.
Dubuffet’s term Art Brut is specific and the term Outsider Art is more broadly and include self-taught or Naive artists who were never institutionalized.
Outsider Artists have no contact with the mainstream art world.
Abbé Fouré, 1839-1910, having suffered a stroke at the age of 30, retreated to a life as a hermit in the cliffs of Rothéneuf. He carved over 300 grotesque and bizarre figures into the rock. Rothéneuf is a village in the north west of France, north-east from Saint-Malo.
