Henry Darger - The Vivian Girls

Henry Darger (Chicago, April 12, 1892 - April 13, 1973) was a reclusive American writer and artist who lived and worked as a janitor in Chicago. He became known after his death, discovered by the illustrated manuscript entitled The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion. A distinct feature in Darger's art is his apparent ignorance of anything sexual. His characters, whether naked or partially clothed often show no gender. Some female characters have even an occasional penis.
