Henry Darger (1892-1973) was a reclusive American artist who worked as a custodian in Chicago, Illinois. He has become famous for his posthumously-discovered 15,145-page, single-spaced fantasy manuscript called The Story of the Vivian Girls.
American outsider artist, Henry Darger created a war-inspired fantasy around pre-pubescent girls with boy parts while toiling as a janitor and never receiving recognition until his artist landlord unearthed his treasure trove shortly before his death.
