Horace Pippin was born in 1888 in West Chester, Pennsylvania.  Pippin was one of the last of this country's important folk artists.  He was the grandson of slaves.  He left school at fourteen, worked as a field hand in Goshen, New York and then enlisted in the Army. During World War I, a sniper wounded him in the right shoulder, partially paralyzing his arm.  After the war, he was able to perform only light labor; he was a junk dealer and delivered laundry that his wife took (showing 500 of 6319 characters).
