Special Naive Collection selected by Neil Baglow
Naïve Art often presents an ingenious version of the world, usually with bright and cheerful colours and simplification of decorative elements. It is sometimes a very simple, unsophisticated type of art that is mostly expressed by artists who have not received formal training. However, it can often be highly detailed with the use of bright saturated colour rather than subtle blends or tones. There is often a characteristic absence of perspective which creates the illusion that figures are anchored in space and appear to be ‘floating’.
For naïve art collectors we’ve put together a short selection of popular naïve artwork by some of our New Art Gallery members showcasing a fascinating range of styles and approaches within the genre. Of course, you’ll also find many more examples within their individual New Art Gallery sections.
