Words Failed Me

Henry Darger

Henry Darger

My thanks (again) to Elenore Weber from Ricco/Maresca Gallery who has given me a much better way to refer to the Henry Darger landscapes now on display than “book illustrations”.  She says, usually “they are described as illustrations for Darger’s more than 15,000-page saga, The Story of the Vivian Girls in What Is Known as the Realms of the Unreal or the Glandelinian War Storm or the Glandico-Abbienian Wars as Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion, (commonly referred to as In the Realms of the Unreal).”

That is why she is a Gallery Director and I am not.  But doesn’t it make you want to see the paintings even more?
