Naïf Art Show – collector Gary McFadden – Largest Naïve Collection in U.S. 
May 14 - July 23, 2021

The Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau is proud to present the first international exposition of Naïf paintings in the United States. Represented are painters from 10 different countries: Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Ecuador, España, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Nicaragua and Perú.

Naïf painting, from the French word Naïveté (ingenuity, innocence, naturalness) is generally referred to as Naïf in the Americas. Naïf painting is usually defined as visual art created by someone without  the formal education and training that a professional painter undergoes. Naïf painters are almost always autodidactic or self-taught. Naïf is recognized and often imitated for its childlike simplicity and frankness. Paintings of this genre typically have a flat rendering style with a rudimentary expression of perspective. Naïf painting can be described as primitivism, ingenious and innocent, and is also considered "outsider art." Unlike "folk art," which adopts a similar simplistic approach, Naïf painting does not derive from a distinct cultural context or tradition. Attention to detail is essential and subsequently one can ultimately ascertain the country of origin by studying each individual painting. The French painter Henri Rousseau is generally regarded as the first Naïf painter with two paintings, "The Repast of the Lion" and "The Dream," both circa 1907, being two of his most famous Naïf paintings.
