"To paint like a child would be something that Picasso, Miro, Matisse, and even Warhol would struggle with for a lifetime, although Warhol moved on to become quite 'adult.' Ultimately, although not entirely successfully (in his own view), Picasso perhaps got the closest. As he put it: 'All children are born artists, the problem is remaining one when he grows up.'
In the following pages, the reader will see some very childlike works of immense character, created by very adult individuals. A depression era movement of Mennonite Ledger Art follows. Few exampls of this work exist, and it's worth reminding ourselves that one need not be famous or groundbreaking or even have proper art materials to be an artist or paint like a child." - Ed Marin, SoicherMarin
