Biography

Jean Dubuffet was one of the earliest forerunners of Modernism. The artist had lived in New York from 1951 to 1952, before returning to Paris. This collage work showcases Dubuffet’s child-like sensibility and exemplifies Dubuffet’s valuing of an unlearned, explorative and genuine approach to art-making. Dubuffet was the founder of the Art Brut movement, which influenced many artists in France, New York, and Chicago.
