Adolf Wölfli (1864 - 1930) was a prolific Swiss artist who is regarded as one of the foremost artists in the Art Brut or outsider art traditions.

In 1978, "Adolf Wölfli: Gelesen Und Vertont," the first recording of Wölfli's work ever to be published, was released by the Adolf Wölfli Foundation, Museum of Fine Arts, Bern. Since that time, a number of German musicians have released adaptations of Wölfli's work. A comprehensive list of these artists can be found at The Adolph Wölfli Foundation's music page.
