Art by the self-taught outsider artist Rudy Rotter (American, 1913-2001). Rudy worked in the Midwest in relative isolation. His work is now being offered to collectors, institutions, and those interested in the Outsider genre.
In this artwork, notice the etched-in face of the child between the couple. This grouping of mother, father, and child was a constant theme repeated in multiple unique formats over Rotter's decades of production. It was core to the vision of his art.
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.

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, this 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, it 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.
