Art BrutArt Brut is an informal art genre. The term (meaning Raw Art) was coined by French painter Jean Dubuffet for the art of the insane. Dubuffet became fascinated by the paintings of people institutionalized with schizophrenia such as Adolf Wolfli, Heinrich Anton Muller and Aloļse Corbaz.
As the Incorrect Music Hour defines it, "A true "Incorrect" artist must be sincere and lack self-awareness. A severe irony deficiency helps. Any humorous overtones to their work must be unintentional."
- Art Brut: The art of the clinically insane, especially painting and drawing.
- Folk art: The art of the ignorant; that is, those unfamiliar with the History of painting and without aspirations to being Fine Art.
- Naive art, Outsider Art: More politically correct terms that gather together both of the above.
