PRICE OF MADNESS
Henri, a young painter, enjoyed early success
in the roller-coaster New York art scene, but now he finds himself
creatively blocked and increasingly alienated from his wife. He
turns for inspiration to his reclusive, schizophrenic aunt, Aloise.
Her drawings thrill and challenge Henri, tempting him with thoughts
of selling her work as his own. Aloise is
based on a Swiss “outsider artist” born in 1886, who
spent most of her life in an asylum and whose work was exhibited
by Jean Dubuffet as part of the Art Brut movement.
