Folk Naïve Painting American, c. 1820
17c: French (naïve) feminine of naïf, from Latin nativus native. Naïve art and folk art are easy to recognize but difficult to define. Naïve art is made by (or in the manner of) painters without formal schooling in art. What naïve painters lack in conventional expertise, with respect to perspective and representational style, is made up for with freshness and simplicity. Naïve art's greatest acknowledged master is Henri Rousseau (French, 1844-1910). Folk artists can be described as naïve as well. The difference is that folk art exhibits a traditional and regional style. Grandma Moses (1860-1961) painted scenes of everyday life on her upstate New York farm that are among the most popular and famous works of American folk art. This painting depicts two women in neo-classical dress with the bounty of the wheat harvest.
