People and Creatures

People and Creatures


Art by the self-taught outsider artist Rudy Rotter (American, 1913-2001). Rudy worked in Manitowoc, WI in relative artistic isolation. His art is now being offered to collectors, institutions, and those interested in the Outsider genre.

This expressionistic piece displays the visionary character of the artist.

Rotter created a large volume of artworks that sprang from the creative recesses of his imagination. No two pieces are exactly alike and all are easily identifiable as belonging to the singular style of this artist.

* People and Creatures -- Magic marker and paint on paper stock - 11 x 17 in. - 1998

Artist info:

re Condition: The art has been stored for decades in an unheated warehouse and is made from donated and scavenged common materials (a usual practice among self-taught artists). Therefore some pieces may show minor signs of age. In such instances, the affected part(s) will be displayed in separate close-up photos.

re UV: This artwork was made before the advent of fade-resistant magic markers. Therefore, if consistently displayed in strong daylight, the art should be framed using UV resistant plexiglass.

The art of Rudy Rotter was included in the Outsider Art Fair in NYC. A recent article featuring the artist appeared in the Folk Art Messenger, Fall/Winter 2018
