The Work of Jean Dubuffet


New York: Museum of Modern Art, 1962 187 pages, illustrations (some colour) notes; 24 cm. First MoMA retrospective of Jean Dubuffet, the French painter who promoted the expression "art brut" to refer to art of the mentally ill, children, folk art, and other "primitives." Influenced by these untrained artists, Dubuffet was looking for authenticity and his paintings are often identified with the post-war existential philosophy of his contemporary Jean-Paul Sartre.
