John Henry Wilde was active/lived in Wisconsin. John Wilde is known for paintings of surreal fanciful images, illustration.
Part of the Wisconsin Surrealist movement in the 1930s and 40s, John
Wilde was a Surrealist painter with focus on life and death through grotesque, doll-like
people in "otherworldly situations". Many of his paintings have old
bones, mutated female creatures, and dream-like landscapes, and
frequently he painted himself into his work. He also did detailed, colorful and eerily glowing still lifes.

joined Glasier at salons at his home where artists gathered to discuss
European modernism and other avant-garde topics. ... Displaying 750 of 4242 characters.
