Dubuffet Drawings, 1935-1962

A leading French artist of the twentieth century, Jean Dubuffet (1901–1985) eschewed traditional notions of beauty in art in favor of what he perceived as more authentic forms of expression, inspired by graffiti, children’s drawings, and the creations of psychiatric patients.
