Jean Dubuffet: Metamorphoses of Landscape
Jean Dubuffet (1901–85) is one of the most influential and versatile artists of the postwar period. With his novel aesthetic inspired by Art Brut (a term he coined), Dubuffet succeeded in breaking away from modernist conventions and redefining the concept of art, and in doing so leaving his mark on the second half of the 20th century.
Jean Dubuffet: Metamorphoses of Landscape―the first substantial English-language Dubuffet monograph in decades―is published for a large-scale retrospective at the Fondation Beyeler, with around 100 major works from all of the artist’s important creative phases.
Besides important paintings and sculptures from international museums and private collections, the book also presents the ensemble of figures from Dubuffet’s stage play Coucou Bazar.
