Jean Dubuffet - part 2

Jean Dubuffet (1901 – 1985) was a French painter and sculptor. His idealistic approach to aesthetics embraced so called "low art" and eschewed traditional standards of beauty in favour of what he believed to be a more authentic and humanistic approach to image-making. For biographical notes on Dubuffet, and for earlier works, see part 1.
