Early life[ edit ] Dubuffet was born in Le Havre to a family of wholesale wine merchants who were part of the wealthy bourgeoisie. But again he stopped, developing his wine business at Bercy during the German Occupation of France. Years later, in an autobiographical text, he boasted about having made substantial profits by supplying wine to the Wehrmacht. In , Dubuffet decided to devote himself again to art.

Dubuffet painted with strong, unbroken colors, recalling the palette of Fauvism , as well as the Brucke painters, with their juxtaposing and discordant patches of color. Many of his works featured an individual or individuals placed in a very cramped space, which had a distinct psychological impact on viewers.

Paulhan was impressed and the meeting proved to be a turning point for Dubuffet. Emulating Fautrier, Dubuffet started to use thick oil paint mixed with materials such as mud, sand, coal dust, pebbles, pieces of glass, string, straw, plaster, gravel, cement, and tar.

This allowed him to abandon the traditional method of applying oil paint to canvas with a brush; instead, Dubuffet created a paste into which he could create physical marks, such as scratches and slash marks.

He painted these portraits in the same thick materials, and in a manner deliberately anti-psychological and anti-personal, as Dubuffet expressed himself. A few years later he approached the surrealist group in , then the College of Pataphysique in Reception in America[ edit ] Dubuffet achieved very rapid success in the American art market, largely due to his inclusion in the Pierre Matisse exhibition in His association with Matisse proved to be very beneficial.

Matisse was a very influential dealer of contemporary European Art in America, and was known for strongly supporting the School of Paris artists. In , Dubuffet had his first solo exhibition in America, in the same gallery as the Matisse exhibition.

Reviews were largely favorable, and this resulted in Dubuffet having at least an annual, if not a biannual exhibition at that gallery. In this sense, Dubuffet is very similar to other artists such as Delacroix , Matisse , and Fromentin. Dubuffet was fascinated by the nomadic nature of the tribes in Algeria—he admired the ephemeral quality of their existence, in that they did not stay in any one particular area for long, and were constantly shifting.

The impermanence of this kind of movement attracted Dubuffet and became a facet of Art Brut. Dubuffet felt that the simple life of the everyday human being contained more art and poetry than did academic art, or great painting.

He sought to create an art as free from intellectual concerns as Art Brut, and as a result, his work often appears primitive and childlike. According to prominent art critic Hilton Kramer , "There is only one thing wrong with the essays Dubuffet has written on his own work: their dazzling intellectual finesse makes nonsense of his claim to a free and untutored primitivism.

They show us a mandarin literary personality, full of chic phrases and up-to-date ideas, that is quite the opposite of the naive visionary. Instead, Dubuffet created the illusion of perspective by crudely overlapping objects within the picture plane. This method most directly contributed to the cramped effect of his works. From he produced a series of works in which he limited himself to the colours red, white, black, and blue. Towards the end of the s he turned increasingly to sculpture, producing works in polystyrene which he then painted with vinyl paint.

Other enterprises[ edit ] In late —, Dubuffet began experimenting with music and sound and made several recordings with the Danish painter Asger Jorn , a founding member of the avant-garde movement COBRA. The same period he started making sculpture, but in a very not-sculptural way. The much written about drawing has been reproduced internationally in three different editions on tens-of-thousands of record albums and compact discs.

ASPHYXIATING CULTURE by JEAN DUBUFFET

He would later be a successful propagandist, gaining notoriety for his attacks on conformism and mainstream culture, which he described as "asphyxiating. His early work was influenced by that of outsiders, but it was also shaped by the interests in materiality that preoccupied many post-war French artists associated with the Art Informel movement. Accomplishments Dubuffet was launched to success with a series of exhibitions that opposed the prevailing mood of post-war Paris and consequently sparked enormous scandal. While the public looked for a redemptive art and a restoration of old values, Dubuffet confronted them with childlike images that satirized the conventional genres of high art. And while the public looked for beauty, he gave them pictures with coarse textures and drab colors, which critics likened to dirt and excrement.

The concept of value, in the artistic sense, is the thing that Dubuffet takes aim at.
