Naive

90 Discovered works of art
The naive painting finds its origin in the works of so-called lay painters and is characterized by a particularly simple, reduced and imaginative representation of their motives. Often the wishful dreams and fantasies of a "healing world" of the artist are presented, with often unnatural proportions of the living beings and the environment and objects to each other. In addition, naive painting often foregoes shadows, so that an interpretation of the motifs that seems almost childishly naïve in the overall composition is perceived. Since often the central perspective is missing in the works of art, they are perceived as striking. However, the effect of depth is often achieved by the oblique juxtaposition of objects of various sizes.

Originated at the beginning of the 20th century, this art movement has produced well-known representatives who developed the style as self-taught. They came from simple, often bourgeois occupations, such as Henri Rousseau (Customs Officer), Louis Vivi (Postman), Camille Bombois (Circus athlete) or André Bauchant (Gardener).

The naive painting achieved great prominence by a traveling exhibition from 1937, which transported this art form from Paris via Zurich to London and New York and made popular. In the post-war period, the art form developed a special popularity by artists from Serbia and it formed a real art center for this style in Serbian cities such as Kovacica and Jagodina. Kovacica is still considered a Mecca for naïve art of international renown, and celebrities such as Lady Diana and singer-songwriter Montserrat Caballé bought works of art by artists from Kovacica.
