Jean Dubuffet




The French painter and sculptor Jean Dubuffet first started as a surrealist and paintings with representational compositions. When he came out, after a long hiatus after the 2nd World War, with its "primitive" material images to the public, he caused quite a stir and provoked a scandal. But 1947 he won with his exhibition at the Matisse Gallery in New York international fame.
Dubuffet was always ready to create an anti-intellectual art, which manifested itself in his many paintings, but also in the sculptures of his Houloupe series.
In 2009 the Langen Foundation showed a major retrospective of the famous painter.
