Pictures just come to my mind, and I tell my heart to go ahead.

Happy Birthday Horace Pippin

pippin.jpgBorn in Pennsylvania, Horace Pippin worked several jobs and joined the army in 1917 before adopting an art career. Upon his return from service, he was badly injured in his right arm and turned to art as therapy. He began painting in 1929 and never received any formal training. However he was one of America’s top primitive painters, often begin compared to Henri Rousseau. His subject matter ranged from his early depictions of trench warfare to historical, religious, and genre paintings, all executed with personal interpretations of those subjects.
