Henry Darger, an elderly recluse, spent his childhood in an Illinois asylum for feeble-minded children and his adulthood working as a janitor. He lived a quiet, nearly solitary existence, but his imaginary life was exciting and colourful. When he died in Chicago in 1973, his landlady discovered in his room 300 paintings, some over 10 feet long, and a 15,000 page illustrated novel (The realms of the unreal), which told the epic story of the virtuous Vivian Girls, seven angelic sisters who lead a rebellion against godless, child-enslaving men. Darger's work is now show in galleries around the world

Henry Darger, 1892-1973 by Henry Darger( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Darger suscite, depuis sa disparition en 1973, fascination qui fait de cet artiste l'un des phénomène les plus énigmatiques de l'histoire de l'art. Orphelin de mère alors qu'il est encore enfant, placé dans un foyer pour déficients mentaux où il subit de mauvais traitements, Darger s'enfuit à pied pour rejoindre Chicago où il vit d'emplois modestes dans divers hôpitaux. Pendant son temps libre, il élabore dans le plus grand secret un ensemble littéraire et pictural considérable, qui sera découvert quelques mois seulement avant sa mort. Une oeuvre unique focalisée , sur une guerre sanglante entre d'imaginaires Glandeliriiens et Angeliniens pour la libération d'enfants esclaves."--P. [4] of cover
Henry Darger : art and selected writings by Henry Darger( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides the first comprehensive survey of Darger's art and writings. Included are reproductions of approximately 114 of Darger's collage drawings and fifteen selections from his writings, focusing on his life's work, In the Realms of the Unreal, which is an account of a cosmic struggle against child slavery unfolding on a planet vastly larger than our own. This battle between the forces of good - led by the intrepid Vivian sisters - and the evil Glandelinian nations, was illustrated and extended in Darger's art, including the mural size watercolor drawings that represent his mature achievement as an artist."--Jacket

Artist novels : the book lovers publication by David Maroto( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication is devoted to the phenomenon of the artist novel, and whether it can be considered to be a medium in its own right within the visual arts. Visual artists create different strategies to integrate their novels into their practice. Introducing traits that are particular to narrative literature into the visual arts implies the accentuation of some features over others, such as narration, fiction, identification, and the act of reading and its protracted engagement, as well as distribution in public space. An artists approach comes fundamentally from the visual arts. The creation of an artist novel doesn't differ from any other artwork. Both processes feed into each other as they evolve within the same body of works. Thanks to the contributions of a selected group of artists, writers, curators, and scholars this publication strives to demonstrate that literature, when treated by visual artists, can take place well beyond the space of the book
