Purvis Young (1943 - 2010)

Purvis Young has been called America's Greatest Pure Painter. We have to agree with Bill Arnett on that one.

Sadly, Purvis passed away in Miami on April 20th, 2010 at the age of 67. He leaves behind a legacy of work unmatched by any American Artist. Shunning the limelight and monetary success that were easily within his grasp, Purvis remained true to his calling and chose to live where he was born, in the poverty and squallor of Overtown, a slum near Miami.

The subject of the Documentary, "Purvis of Overtown", Purvis Young painted on found objects - scrap wood, fabric, carpeting, note book paper, discarded folders, computer paper, anything he could get his hands on. Purvis was a master at taking nothing and making something beautiful and meaningful out of it.

The museums that house works by Purvis Young are too many to list, and the number of works held in important private collections is beyond belief. A collection of Outsider Art can not be complete without representative works by Purvis Young.
