Folk art -- also called
naÔve art, primitive , popular art, outsider art, traditional art and
even working class art.-- describes a wide
range of objects that reflect the craft traditions and traditional social values
of various social groups. Folk art is generally produced by people who have
little or no academic artistic training and use established techniques and
styles of a particular region or culture. Along with painting,
sculpture, and other decorative art forms, some also consider
utilitarian objects such as tools and costume as folk art.
Antique folk art is
collected today based mostly on its artistic merit.. Examples include: ,
Naif painting, sculptures, Dolls, Frames, Furniture, Stacking boxes, Baskets,
Ironworks, Decoys, Stoneware,Textiles , Prints and decorative art forms. Utilitarian objects
such as tools, dinnerware
and costumes, weathervanes, old store signs and carved figures, itinerant
portraits, carousel horses, fire buckets, painted game boards, cast iron
doorstops and similar lines of highly collectible "whimsical" antiques
distinguished from traditional art in that it was never intended as a category
to be art for artís sake.
