About this title


from the Foreword: "Arguably the most significant figurative artist to emerge in Europe following World War II, Jean Dubuffet challenged traditional attitudes toward art, creating an expansive body of work inspired by the everyday and the art of children and the insane. Dubuffet elevated objects previously overlooked or considered unsuitable as subject matter - decaying walls and cluttered streets became the backdrop for compressed, highly charge tableaus of people riding bicycles, gathering potatoes, or giving birth. Dubuffet also incorporated the substance of the environment - dirt, grass, leaves, pebbles - into his visual vocabulary, resulting in an endless array of textural studies. This exhibition highlights Dubuffet's printmaking activities, which largely paralleled the artist's work in painting and sculpture. However, Dubuffet regarded printmaking as a distinct activity within his oeuvre. In the mid-1940's, soon after he seriously committed himself to a career in art, Dubuffet began to make prints. The seventy prints included in the exhibition, a sampling of the more than six hundred prints created by the artist, reflect Dubuffet's antitraditional approach to aesthetics and illustrate his continual experimentation with the materials and techniques of printmaking. Dubuffet Prints is the result of a collaboration between The Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. . . .Copyright 1989. 107 pages including Foreword, Selected Bibliography.
