Jean Dubuffet

Jean Philippe Arthur Dubuffet was a French painter and sculptor. With his primative and childlike style, Dubuffet rejected traditional aesthetics to explore what he believed a more direct and authentic approach to artmaking.

Dubuffet studied in the Academie, but after six months he left to study independently. He admired the work of children and the mentally ill, and collected and promoted art by mental patients, prisoners, and children outside aesthetic norms.

His collection of ART BRUT is in the museum Art Brut in Lausanne Switzerland. In 1962, the Museum of Modern Art in New York had first retrospective of his work.
