Art by outsiders

Art Brut is the collective term for autodidactic art, produced by artists who have never been taught and who not infrequently have a learning disability. The world’s first ever collection of Art Brut, and perhaps its most important, is in Switzerland. The Collection de l’Art Brut in Lausanne displays works by some 1,000 extraordinary artists.
