About This Piece
The Art
ScreenprintbrEdition of brbrPublished in Condition A mint

In “Theatre de Memorie, 1977,” artistic rebel Jean Dubuffet displayed his love of the mundane, as well as his contempt for exceptional locations and people, by portraying two depersonalized individuals lost among the masses. This starkly primitive piece typifies Dubuffet’s Art Brut (Raw Art) style, which antagonized the art world and spawned a new creative language intended to be universally understood. Dubuffet (1901 – 1985) vehemently opposed aesthetic traditions by drawing inspiration from the artwork of children and the insane, who he considered untainted by culture. Although Dubuffet's work often provoked contempt, it strongly influenced the emergence of Pop Art and neo-Dadaism.

This serigraph is an artisan print with a stunning paint-like vibrancy and viscosity. Also known as screen printing or silk screening, serigraphy is a printing process by which inks are forced through a mesh screen and applied to the surface of the print. The result is a brilliantly hued work of art that retains its beauty for a lifetime.

The Artist
Controversial French artist Jean Dubuffet (1901 – 1985) antagonized the established art world by producing a new, universally understood creative language called Art Brut (Raw Art). Originally a wine merchant, Dubuffet vehemently defied artistic traditions by creating stark, primitive pieces inspired by the artwork of children and the insane, who he believed were uncontaminated by culture. Indifferent to concepts of beauty and ugliness, his subjects were portrayed as dehumanized individuals lost amidst the chaos of cramped spaces. In many of his works, he incorporated a thick impasto of asphalt, pebbles and glass. Although Dubuffet's artwork was often reviled, it strongly impacted the emergence of Pop Art and neo-Dadaism.
