Al Corchia (1914 - 2006) was an American painter, illustrator, and writer. He was best known for his pastoral landscape paintings, and was also a significant influence on the American primitive art scene. Corchia's artwork was often characterized by a combination of stylized, expressionistic, and fantasy-like elements that depicted the rural American landscape, particularly the Midwestern part of the United States. One of his most renowned works is American Visionary Landscape which won the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Grant in 1995. Other important works of Corchia include Moon and Water, Summer Fields, and The Rain.
