About this item

A sumptuous monograph presenting for the first time the extraordinarily imaginative and delightful work of visionary artist Renaldo Kuhler (American, 1931-2013) . The Secret World of Renaldo Kuhler catapults a thrilling new discovery into the pantheon of the most accomplished visionary -- or "outsider" -- artists. Like Henry Darger, Howard Finster, George Widener, and Adolf Wolfli, Renaldo Kuhler was an exceptionally gifted artist and possessed an imagination all his own. By day Kuhler was a self-taught scientific illustrator under the employ of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, for which he created thousands of wonderfully precise illustrations of myriad natural history specimens -- reptiles, fish, turtles, and the like. Renaldo Kuhler was an unusual individual, as was instantly clear from his appearance alone.
