Mose T A to Z
The book is an intimate portrait of unique African-American who saw fame in his own lifetime after a disaster caused him to pick up a paintbrush. The photographs, the artwork, and poignant quotes by Mose offer powerful images, touching the South's natural soul. Anton Haardt lets us see beyond the artist into the personality of a complex man who took defeat and turned it into victory. It is a great book for fans of Mose, aficionado's of folk art, curious readers everywhere and libraries daring to blend art school painters with untrained artistic genius.
