AMERICAN FOLK ART MUSEUM

Art Brut in America

The Incursion of Jean Dubuffet

Published by American Folk Art Museum
By Valérie Rousseau. Foreword by Anne-Imelda Radice. Text by Jean Dubuffet, Sarah Lombardi, Kent Minturn, Jill Shaw.

Aloïse Corbaz' "Lion de Lucerne dans le manteau (Lion of Lucerne in the coat)" (1962-63) is reproduced from <I>Art Brut in America</I>.

A look at the influence Dubuffet's collection of outsider art had on mid Century American artists.

Art Brut in America: The Incursion of Jean Dubuffet traces the influence of Art Brut in the US through works from Dubuffet’s art brut collection. The exhibition and its accompanying catalogue are organized around two seminal art-historical moments: the display of Dubuffet’s collection at the home of artist and collector Alfonso Ossorio in the 1950s, and Dubuffet’s provocative speech “Anticultural Positions” delivered at the Arts Club of Chicago in 1951. Including both little-known and canonical works--such as drawings, annotated manuscripts, letters, paintings, embroideries and sculptures--created by 38 artists, including Aloïse Corbaz, Heinrich Anton Müller, Francis Palanc, Jeanne Tripier and Adolf Wölfli, as well as artworks by anonymous artists and children, this volume points to the influence of Art Brut on the burgeoning American style of Abstract Expressionism, as well as on individual artists and collectors.

Aloïse Corbaz' "Lion de Lucerne dans le manteau (Lion of Lucerne in the coat)" (1962-63) is reproduced from Art Brut in America.

Art Brut in America: The Incursion of Jean Dubuffet

Art Brut in America: The Incursion of Jean Dubuffet, Gaston Duf"Pâûlîchinêle gânsthêrs vitrês’-he [sic] (Punchinello gangsters vitrês’-he)" was produced by Gaton Duf (aka Gaston Dufour) at Saint-André-lez-Lille Psychiatric Hospital in 1949. One of dozens of outstanding works featured in the American Folk Art Museum's Art Brut in America—presenting works from the noted outsider art collection of French painter Jean Dubuffet—it was made with colored pencils supplied by Duf's doctor after he discovered strange drawings, made in the margins of newspapers, in the linings of his patient's clothes. According to the catalogue, "Dufour began to make larger-format compositions with recurrent subjects of a puppet and a strange, protean creature that he called a rhinoceros; he spelled the word differently each time he drew the animal." continue to blog
