"The Reverend Howard Finster emerged from the rural Appalachian culture of northeast Alabama and northwest Georgia to become one of America's most important creative personalities in the last quarter of the twentieth century. He was a visionary artist in various visual media as well as a poet and a musician, and his creative output and cultural influence were enormous. Although he has been called 'the Picasso of folk artists,' his fusion of tradition and innovation makes the label 'folk artist' questionable." - "Howard Finster."
