Eugene Von Bruenchenhein drawing


This is an ink drawing by the great outsider artist Eugene Von Bruenchenhein, who is currently the subject of an exhibition at the American Folk Art Museum. I bought this drawing years ago after spotting a tiny ad in the New York Times. It's dated Nov. 21, 1966. I'm not sure Von Bruenchenhein's penmanship here represents anything other than beauty. According to the NYT review of the show, these drawings "are the least known of Von Bruenchenhein’s work." Please pardon the shadowy striping from the porch railing; the photo was taken outside.
