Antonio Ligabue (18 December 1899 – 27 May 1965) (Real name: Antonio Laccabue) was an Italian painter, one of the most important Naïve artists of the 20th century.
He was born in Zurich, Switzerland on 18 December 1899, and died in Gualtieri, Reggio Emilia, Italy on 27 May 1965.
He was named "Al Matt" (the madman) or "Al tedesch" (the German).
In 1965, after his death, he was a retrospective in the context of the Ninth Quadrennial of Rome.
In 1928 he met Renato Marino Mazzacurati who understood what the genuine art and taught him the use of oil paints guiding it to the full development of his talent.
In those years he devoted himself to painting and continued to wander aimlessly along the River Po.
In 1937 he was hospitalized in a mental hospital in Reggio Emilia for self-mutilation.
