Madge Gill (1882-1961) is undoubtedly one of the world's most highly regarded outsider artists. She is represented in all of the international outsider public collections including the Collection de L'art Brut Lausanne and the L'Aracine Collection at the Musee d'Art Moderne in Lille.
Roger Cardinal, who coined the term Outsider Art in 1972 and is the author of the seminal text by the same name, writes in his latest biography 'The Life of Madge Gill':
"Gill’s frenetic improvizations have an almost hallucinatory quality, each surface being filled with checkerboard patterns that suggest giddy, quasi-architectural spaces. Afloat upon these swirling proliferations are the pale faces of discarnate and nameless women, sketched perfunctorily, albeit with an apparent concern for beauty, and with startled expressions."
