Joseph Yoakum (1890-1972) Mt. Raelene near town of Perth Australia  22"x14" n.d.
ball point pen and colored pencil on paper

Yoakum lived most of his adult life in Chicago. His drawings were inspired by his memory of travels either real or imagined. An outsider that was invited into the world of contemporary art by the Chicago Imagists who discovered his work in the 60's. Wonderfully imaginative compositions developed using the most simple and humblest of materials. Many of today's contemporary artists could learn a lot from looking at his work.
