Staff Recommendation: Art Brut in America: The Incursion of Jean Dubuffet

A beautiful group of works of 38 outsider artists from the collection of Jean Dubuffet including drawings, manuscripts, letters, paintings, assemblages, embroideries and sculptures.

The book explores the influence of these works in the US and on abstract expressionism. It highlights Dubuffet’s interest in art that was non-Western and celebrated creators who are mainly outside of artistic culture.

“We witness here the artistic process in all it’s purity, raw, reinvented on all its levels by the maker, starting solely from his own impulses…” Jean Dubuffet as translated by Alfonso Ossorio
