Howard Finster is the most prominent and famed member of the “outsider art” movement. A native of Alabama, he spent the better part of his life as a preacher.
In 1976, he received a vision from God instructing him to begin painting sacred art. Just shy of 47,000 paintings later, his vision has placed his work in the Smithsonian, American Folk Art Museum, Library of Congress and major museums around the world.
