Dubuffet Drawings

Dubuffet Drawings, 1935–1962 brings together some 100 works on paper ranging from views of Paris and scenes from the Sahara to nudes and portraits of writers. The founder of the Art Brut movement, Dubuffet favored “raw” forms of expression such as graffiti and the creations of psychiatric patients, and cultivated a similarly unfiltered quality in his own work. In drawing as in other media, he experimented tirelessly with different subject matter, techniques, and tools. Drawn from public and private collections in France and the United States, the show is the first museum retrospective to be devoted exclusively to this aspect of his oeuvre.
