This vibrant, colorful exhibition of Earl Cunningham’s paintings celebrated this major American folk artist. Cunningham, born in 1893, lived 84 years, painting hundreds of imaginative, innovative, brightly colored pictures. His works are primitive, busy, gay and childlike. A self-taught artist, he painted people, houses, sailing ships, birds and beasts in both familiar and exotic locales.
