More Info

"Adolf Wlfli (Bern 1864 - Waldau 1930) was a Swiss artist who was one of the first artists to be associated with the Art Brut or outsider art label.
Baudouin de Jaer had not been previously exposed to Wlfli's work. He was completely moved by the artistic and human dimensions of
the mystery surrounding this gigantic and universal body of work created within the Waldau hospital in the early 20th century.
He managed what none other had accomplished before: to decode Wlfli's hermetic and emblematic scores." [label info]
