Description

In the 1920s and 1930s, expanding definitions of art led to the acceptance of new forms. Modernists particularly found echoes of their own use of simplified forms and nontraditional techniques in the work of American folk and “outsider” artists, who had received no formal art training. John Flannagan adopted the technique of direct carving, working without models or maquettes.
