French Art

   French  Art
(20 Century)

★ Jean  Dubuffet - "Art Brut"

 Jean  Dubuffet (1901 - 1985) was a french Artist & Sculptor.  Dubuffet In 1918, he had enrolled at the Académie Julian in Paris, but left after only six months to work independently. In 1923, after reading Hans Prinzhorn's Bildnerei der Geisteskranken (1922), in which the art of the mentally ill was first considered to have aesthetic value, Dubuffet became interested in pictures made by those without formal training—the uninitiated, the alienated, and especially the insane. Many years later, in 1945, he started a collection of these pictures, which he called "Art Brut". Also came to reject the methods and values of traditional art. "Beautiful" and "ugly" had no meaning for him, and he tirelessly defended his "anti-art" and "anti-culture" theories in lectures and in two volumes of essays (1967). He wanted his subject matter to be accessible to simple people and to relate to their daily lives, and thus his first paintings were of Parisians riding the crowded metro.
