Wed, Feb 22 Happy Birthday, Horace Pippin! On this day in 1888, Pippin was born in West Chester Pennsylvania. As a child he loved to draw and persisted even when he couldn’t afford art supplies. Wounded in WWI, the self-taught artist took up painting as a kind of psychological and physical therapy; his work was eventually discovered by NC Wyeth and C. Brinton. Pippin remained in West Chester until his death in 1946. Today, his art is on view at major museums from New York to California.
