Self-Taught Art

Milton Schwartz

Milton Schwartz made collages that he characterized as “the history of myself in Florida.” He used 9”x12” manila file folders as these form four panels, and hence a booklet, which facilitated his telling stories in his own words and with pictures cut out of magazines. His collages share moral underpinnings that rely on his faith in Jesus Christ, who he called "the leader of the band."
