  • On the vexed question of the definition see http://www.rawvision.com/outsiderart/whatisoa.html: 'Sadly we find today that many use the term in the loosest way, to refer to almost any untrained artist. It is simply not enough to be untrained, clumsy or naive. Outsider Art is virtually synonomous with Art Brut in both spirit and meaning, to that rarity of art produced by those who do not know its name.'
