Hello! There’s a new blog post up. This week’s art history spotlight: Joseph Yoakum. Yoakum was a self-taught landscape artist. His work falls under the category of outsider art. (I prefer to not use that term but it helps provide context at times.) He started making art in his early 70s, and within ten years, he made over 2,000 artworks!
