Art of the Untrained, or So You Would Think

This is a quick update of something I'm learning in my HoMA class right now. With two hours before my exam. But Karel Appel is an artist of the movement COBRA which was an abbreviation for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam. They looked to a reductionist method of stripping out all that is needed to represent something and seen clearly in Appel's work there is a lot missing, but you get the idea.

I just love the forms of the children with such simple, straightforward iconographic sort of speech through the art.

This one is my favourite.
