Most widely held works by Roger Cardinal
The artist outsider : creativity and the boundaries of culture by Michael D Hall( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors discuss variously the work of artist outsiders as fundamental human expression, political turf, clinical data, a marker of community, a functional artifact, and a sign of personal identity. The more theoretical essays consider the problem of artistic classification; political and philosophical issues involved in the idea of the artist outsider; and critical responses to new forms of art. Other essays examine the works of French environmental artist Pierre Avezard, Mexican American schizophrenic artist Martin Ramirez, Lithuanian Canadian painter Jahan Maka, Swiss German Surrealist sculptor Meret Oppenheim, and African American woodcarver Elijah Pierce. With its interdisciplinary vision, The Artist Outsider offers new ideas about how studies of art resonate with the examination of culture. Often in stark disagreement with one another, these essays provoke a reassessment of widely accepted ideas about the relationships among art, artistry, marginality, and culture

Grandma Moses in the 21st century by Jane Kallir( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: "Grandma Moses and her paintings first came to public attention in 1940, when she was 80 years old. Her folk art, down-home personality, and background as a farmer and homemaker charmed the American public. By the time she died at the age of 101, she had completed over 1600 works of art and had established an international reputation. The work of "the white-haired girl," a self-taught artist who was a regular news feature for two decades, remained enormously popular at home and abroad even in the years after her death." "For this reevaluation of the work of Grandma Moses, Jane Kallir contributes an authoritative introduction and presents a catalogue that illustrates 87 of Moses' most important works. Kallir traces Moses' development as an artist from the first embroidered landscapes to the glorious paintings of her "old-age style." The Grandma Moses myth is tackled from various perspectives. Roger Cardinal examines the artist's working methods, exploring the relationship between the actual regional landscape and her interpretation of the area. Michael D. Hall places Moses within the context of contemporary artistic and social movements of the 1940s and 1950s. Lynda Roscoe Hartigan reveals how memory and imagination merge in the paintings. And Judith E. Stein discusses the role of gender in shaping the artist's reputation in the postwar years."

De artificiali perspectiva, or, Anamorphosis( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Quays' interest in esoteric illusions finds its perfect realization in this fascinating animated lecture on the art of anamorphosis. This artistic technique, often used in the 16th- and 17th centuries, utilizes a method of visual distortion with which paintings, when viewed from different angles, mischievously revealed hidden symbols.
