Henry Darger

Following the discovery of Darger's secret life work, Nathan Lerner was instrumental in gaining recognition for Henry Darger as an artist and writer, and after Lerner's death in 1997, that role fell to his widow, Kiyoko Lerner. As a result of their stewardship, 4 decades after Darger's death, Darger's works are to be found in many collections including MOMA New York, MCA Chicago, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Collection de l'Art Brut in Lausanne.

Darger's major writings are held in the Henry Darger Study Center at the American Folk Art Museum in New York, and Darger's room environment has been recreated as the Henry Darger Room Collection
at Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art in Chicago. Darger has been the subject of numerous books, including studies by Michael Bonesteel, Klaus Biesenbach and John M. MacGregor, and has inspired countless works by others in art, music, film, poetry and theatre.
