The Mishkin Gallery at Baruch College will present the exhibition Self-Taught Art from Latin America and the Caribbean: The Aldemaro and Ana Romero Collection from Friday, April 21 to Friday May 19, 2017, featuring paintings and sculptures by artists who lack professional education and training.

As self-taught art has become popular with museums and universities, it is possible for these unknown artists to become part of the art historical canon. Some self-taught artists are already well-known, including the French painter Henri Rousseau (1944-1910), who was discovered by Pablo Picasso. Simplicity, repetition, a geometrically erroneous sense of perspective, and the use of brilliant, saturated colors are among the major characteristics of this art. Free and open to the public.
