Henry Darger: Realms of the Unreal

Proud soldier

Pansies

Rams’ horns

Setting the grass on fire

Spangled blengins



  1. Did Henry Darger have any family? Isn’t the folk art museum afraid of relatives? If these are truely transexual illustrations doesn’t the community that they attempt to free own them? Why do the alpha male and alpha feamales always steel?

  2. Dear Donald, Henry’s mother died at childbirth when he was 4. His father went to a Mission Home when he was 8 and died shortly afterwards.

    Henry had 3 siblings but he never knew any of them. One was given up for adoption and we hae no record of the other two whatsoever.
