“A Henry Darger Dispute: Who Inherits the Rights to a Loner’s Genius?”

Robin Pogrebin writes here about the conflict over rights to Henry Darger’s work. “When the janitor-turned-artist Henry Darger died in Chicago at 81 in 1973, leaving a single room crammed with his colorful illustrations, a 15,000-page book and no immediate surviving relatives, Darger’s landlord began showing, sharing and selling his work.” (Thanks, Benjamin!)
