The Solar Ricochet Aloïse's World

Confined in an asylum at the age of 32 because of her schizophrenia, Aloïse Corbaz (1886-1964) started to write and draw shortly after entering hospital. Her exuberant imagination and her talent made her a reference in the world of Art Brut.

She produced hundreds of works in different shapes and sizes (individual drawings and paintings, notebooks, scrolls several metres in length). She used black lead, coloured pencils and wax crayons, and liked to cover the entire surface of both sides of whatever material she was using.
