Darger : the Henry Darger collection at the American Folk Art Museum by Henry Darger( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Henry Darger died in 1973 at the age of 81, he left behind an astonishing cache of art, shocking in both its content and its sheer size. The trove included massive, multivolume illustrated manuscripts, double-sided nine-foot-long watercolor murals, photo-enlarged tracings, and hundreds of sketches. Depicting a turbulent world, these works are the product of the fertile yet tormented imagination of a secretive Chicago janitor who has since been recognized as one of the supreme self-taught artists of the 20th century." "Cataloging in full color the American Folk Art Museum's recent acquisition of 22 paintings (15 of which are double sided), among other Darger works, this informative yet affordable volume offers a general introduction to a controversial self-taught artist."--BOOK JACKET

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."--Page [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
