Fully illustrated catalog for the exhibition Self-Taught Genius: Treasures from the American Folk Art Museum at the American Folk Art Museum, 2014, and its national tour through 2017. By Stacy C. Hollander and Dr. Valerie Rousseau, with a foreword by the Honorable Anne-Imelda Radice. The two curatorial essays consider the changing implications of “self-taught” in the United States, from a deeply entrenched and widespread culture of self-education in the early national period to its usage today to describe artists working outside the art historical canon. The exhibition, national tour, and catalog were made possible by generous funding from the Henry Luce Foundation, as part of its 75th anniversary initiative. New York: American Folk Art Museum, 2014. 296 pages, 154 illustrations, softcover, 8 ½ x 10 ½ in.
