A Curious Observation

I found this article on the works of Charles Steffen, a schizophrenic artist, and I had a very strange thought:

These remind one of the Voynich Manuscript, with their curious imagery and text all around the image.

The article says Steffen had studied art history so it may be a matter of influence in his case.  Then again, it’s a rather obscure manuscript that has only become widely known to the general public in my lifetime so far as I can tell, so I don’t know…  maybe the author of the Voynich manuscript was also an outsider artist with schizophrenia?
