Andrew Edlin Gallery (New York) showed work by Eugene Von Bruenchenhein at Art Basel Miami Beach 2016. The artist was from Wisconsin where he lived and worked for most of his "career." I put quotes around career because he seems to have mostly created in private. He was a baker by trade but he and his wife did photographs (she as model, he as photographer). He also painted and created sculpture.
He was not exhibited or acknowledged during his lifetime--which is one of the vile things about the art world. If his work had been brought to many galleries and museums during his lifetime, his lack of a pedigree would have likely precluded exhibition. Self taught "outsider" artists are often acknowledged after they die. While he would be happy his work was being shown at such a significant Art Show? It would have been nicer if he had received the financial rewards for it himself.
Von Breunchenhein thought he was a great artist. He was right. Find out more HERE. This site is also looking for images of the artist's work.
