Jean Dubuffet, ‘Ecrits et Lithographies (Signed)’, 1968, Alpha 137 Gallery

Extremely rare, signed vintage 1960s lithograph for the exhibition "Ecrits et Lithographies" (Writings and Graphics) at the Galerie La Pochade, Paris. This lithograph was published by the legendary Atelier Mourlot, with the printers distinctive blind stamp (see photo) - so it's an example of pure original lithography - not an offset. It is exceptionally inscribed and signed by the artist. Highly collectible when hand signed! We have removed it from the vintage glass frame for safety reasons, so it is now affixed to a black board and ready to be re-framed. It is in excellent condition. A rare and important piece of art historical ephemera.

About Jean Dubuffet

In his seminal modernist paintings, Jean Dubuffet delved deep into questions of ground and materiality. Such themes were highly charged during the post–WWII period in which he worked, shortly after the destruction of many European cities as well as the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the war. The surfaces of his canvases are thick and clotted; their aesthetic is muddy and scatological. Dubuffet coined the term “Art Brut” to describe the kind of work that he collected and aspired toward: the untrained, outsider art of alienated groups, including children and the mentally ill. His own paintings are purposefully “deskilled,” often possessing the spontaneity and crude aesthetic of finger paintings.

French, 1901-1985, Le Havre, France, based in Paris, France
