Description

By Jen Bryant

As a child in the late 1800s, Horace Pippin loved to draw: He loved  the feel of the charcoal as it slid across the floor. He loved looking  at something in the room and making it come alive again in front of him.  He drew pictures for his sisters, his classmates, his co-workers. Even  during WW I, Horace filled his notebooks with drawings from the  trenches . . . until he was shot. Upon his return home, Horace couldn't  lift his right arm, and couldn't make any art. Slowly, with lots of  practice, he regained use of his arm, until once again, he was able to  paint--and paint, and paint! Soon, people—including the famous painter  N. C. Wyeth—started noticing Horace's art, and before long, his  paintings were displayed in galleries and museums across the country.
