"Woman Walking Uphill", ca. 1970
Oil pastel on paper
25 1/2" x 19 1/2" (framed)
Provenance: Hill Gallery, Michigan
Self-taught, inspired by magazine illustrations, Eddie Arning’s 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.

Condition

Good condition with one possible 3/4" tear at upper left corner of sheet. Not examined out of frame.
