Justin McCarthy

Born 1892, Pennsylvania, died 1977, Tuscon Arizona, he became one of the great masters in American folk/outsider art. His entry in the Encyclopedia of American Folk Art reads, "The legend of Justin McCarthy--the recluse who lived in a decaying mansion in Weatherly, Pennsylvania and painted his way into the Museum of Modern Art--is a matter of history. He would paint anything that interested him--pretty girls, movie stars, high fashion, politicians, sporting events, personal heroes, flowers, vegetables, animals or historical events...He drew and painted on anything he had on hand--old file folders, cardboard, masonite or canvas...McCarthy is recognized as a major folk artist of his time, with a reputation that continues to grow."
