> DESCRIPTION

The first major review in a UK public gallery for nearly 50 years of the work of the influential artist Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985), regarded as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. The exhibition has been organised with the assistance of the Fondation Dubuffet, Paris and will feature key paintings, drawings and sculpture from collections across France and the UK.

Dubuffet is best known as the father of Art Brut (‘raw art’), coining the concept in 1945 and creating a celebrated Art Brut collection. Throughout his life Dubuffet sought out non-professional or self-taught artists that he perceived to be ‘unscathed by artistic culture’. Their work subverted the traditional canon of beauty, and Dubuffet found within them a raw expressive power that was vital to his practice.
