Naive Art

  Naive art, not to be confused with folk art or primitive art (see primitivism), is the work of (usually European) artists without formal training who exhibit a lack of concern with the conventions of representation such as scientific perspective or the consistent use of chiaroscuro. Naive artists such as Henri Rousseau in France, Grandma Moses in the US and Alfred Wallace in the UK favour strong colours and literal drawing to express an intensely personal interest in narrative. Not all naive work is by untrained artists, Lowry and Rockwell, for example, have used ‘naive’ styles to infuse their work with a directness of vision and a ‘commonsense’ focus on narrative.
