I saw these paintings of horses by Marcos Bontempo at the 2020 Outsider Art Fair, and really liked them, the way they’re clearly horses, but somewhat abstract and very painterly at the same time. They were on view at the booth of Galerie Anne de Villepoix, who is based in Paris.

I’m trying to find out more information about this artist, and am having a hard time finding much. This website mentions that Bontempo “… periodically suffers from schizophrenic episodes. Painting, and his connection with nature seem to be his best therapy.” The Galerie Anne de Villepoix website doesn’t give any biographical information, but you can see more of Bontempo’s work on her website.
