    In 1981 a Professor named Leo Navratil decided to open a residential house for artists in Gugging, Austria. The residents were not your typical artists and the house was more like a social care center than a residential home. Coming from a psychiatric hospital near Vienna, the "Gugging artists" that live in this house are mentally ill and are pushed to paint everyday in a calming environment that is conducive to art.

    Paintings permeate the interior and exterior of the house and its residents are encouraged to see blank wall spaces as an open canvass. From the street the house is a breathtaking oddity, with its colorful and vibrant decorations, and the interior is similarly eye-catching. Prolific artists such as August Walla, Oswald Tschirtner, and Johann Garber have participated in making the house what it is today both aesthetically and integrally.

Carlo Zinelli (July 2, 1916 – January 27, 1974) was a schizophrenic outsider artist. He was born in the Italian countryside near Verona but left for the city in 1934. He volunteered for the Spanish Civil War in 1939, but his schizophrenic personality quickly revealed itself, and he was placed on medical leave after only two months. He was committed to the psychiatric hospital in Verona in 1947 and spent ten years in almost total isolation.

1914 - 1979 Josef Bachler tackled his drawings very decidedly, using few lines to cut through the white sheet. Singular distinctive dashes sketched a woman, a man or an animal - clearly and uncompromisingly. The viewer saw a “completed” work: no doubt as to whether anything might be missing in the cat, the elephant or the human.
