The catalogue to a groundbreaking exhibition of Dubuffet's seminal "Art Brut" and including historic essays by the artist published for the first time. This is the first book to be published on Dubuffet's early work in painting and sculpture in more than two decades. Organized by Mark Rosenthal, the exhibition focuses on Dubuffet's work from 1943 to 1959, and emphasizes the artist's "anti-cultural" approach in his depiction of subjects and his use of unorthodox materials. Several works by the French painter are on loan from private collections and museums.
