Art History: Naive Art: ( - )
Na´ve art refers to the work done by an artist who was not trained in an academy or other traditional manner of art education. It is characterized by an unusual approach to the formal qualities of painting and awkward drawing skills, resulting in an almost childish image. Other qualities of na´ve art include pattern, unrefined color and simplicity. Notable na´ve artists include Henri Rousseau, Camille Bombois, and Alfred Wallis. Na´ve artists are sometimes referred to as primitive artists.
