Man and Daughter

Man and Daughter


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

For this work, note the extreme efficient use of line. While at first glance this drawing may appear to be an unsophisticated rendering, it is actually portraiture done with great skill both in terms of image representation and emotional gravitas.

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 being the product of this unique artist.

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, 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.
