The art of Hoffmann de Visme Foundation
work by autistic adults

"Look at these works with a fresh, unprejudiced eye. Among them are pieces reminiscent of accepted masters: the precision of a Patrick Caulfield, the innocence of an Alfred Wallis, the vibrancy of a Philip Sutton and the graphic power of a Käthe Kollwitz. Between them they generate more electricity and feeling than some established exhibiting societies can produce in a decade."

(David Buckman, Author Dictionary of Artist Working in Britain since 1945)
