Here is the blurb from the V & A.. The boats were my favorites as were the embroidered flags.. Do try and visit this amazing exhibition, it is only small but huge in many other ways'.
Arthur Bispo do Rosário
13 August – 28 October 2012 Admission freeThe display brings together over 80 artworks ranging from sculptures, hand-embroidered banners and garments, showcasing the variety and creativity of Arthur Bispo do Rosario (1909-1989), one of Brazil’s most recognized artists.
Admitted to a psychiatric hospital at the age of 29, Bispo’s creations were made in complete isolation from the art establishment. However his ‘outsider’ art has long been celebrated for its skill and imaginative approach to working with everyday, found materials. The work on show demonstrates his fascination for the re-appropriation of objects such as buttons, bottles, paper, card and cutlery, which he manipulated to create elaborate sculptural pieces.
