About

Oil on canvas of a female nude by Dr. Tarmo Pasto (American, 1906-1986). Signed lower right corner. He also authored a book on art, "The Space-Frame Experience in Art", published in 1964. He, however, was mainly known to the world for introducing the works of one of his patients, Martin Ramirez (1885-1963). Dr. Pasto was a psychiatrist for Ramirez in the late 1950s and provided him with quality art materials and also encouraged his artistic endeavors. The art of the insane was of particular interest to Dr. Pasto would often use examples of it in his classroom. Patso was also very instrumental in initiating a number of Bay Area exhibitions of what today is considered outsider art. In the 1970's he with the help of artist James Nutt, provided the first public showing of Martin Rameriz's art work. Thus Tarmo Pasto gets much of the credit for introducing one of the well-known Outsider artists to the world. He also discovered the outsider artist P.M. Wentworth and promoted his work. Dr. Pasto was a long-time contributor to the California art scene, as well as an art teacher and psychologist to many successful artists. Signed "Tarmo Pasto" and dated "73" bottom right. Presented in a taupe painted wood frame. Image size, 48"H x 34"L.
