"Martín Ramírez (1895–1963) created nearly 300 drawings of remarkable visual clarity and expressive power within the confines of DeWitt State Hospital in northern California, where he resided the last 15 years of his life. Ramírez has been codified primarily as a “schizophrenic artist”; [yet...] Ramirez’s works are understood—and appreciated—for the complex, multilayered drawings that they are." – The Folk Art Museum
