As it is well known, the style "naif" is not a rigid artistic movement nor does it know or practice a determined esthetic doctrine. From the beginning of its grand formation in diverse latitudes and persons beginning with Rousseau the customs agent, Vivien, John Kane, Grandma Moses, Vivancos, etc., from the beginning of the original cultivators, not one has practiced an esthetic doctrine. Champions all of an attitude purely vital, nor have they elaborated a peculiar philosophy of art nor have they interchanged formally their discoveries. They have only limited to the assimilation intuitively of the beauty of the world about them and have not desired to translate that into theories but rather in works. A painter, as we well know, is that person who in every canvas invents painting, giving preference to the truth of "telling something". They tell of a life poeticized by memory, converting their canvases, by effort and the grace of their sensitivity and function, into a subjective mix of graceful figures, delicious panoramas, stories of mysterious and refined colors, giving birth to a smile of joy in those who contemplate the works.
