After Jean Dubuffet, Alégresse 1959

About the Item

First printed in 1959 as an edition of 60 this lithograph titled Alégresse is a later unnumbered edition, signed in print J. Dubuffet. Jean Dubuffet’s material experimentations, thickly built-up surfaces, and raw, expressionistic brushstrokes and helped expand the boundaries of painting in the 20th century. The artist coined the term “Art Brut” to define his mode of artmaking: He drew inspiration from the innocent, unrefined style of prisoners, children, and the institutionalized. Dubuffet’s practice also spanned drawing, printmaking, and sculpture, and he occasionally combined all his pursuits into multimedia pieces accompanied by live performances. Materials such as cement, plaster, tar, and asphalt heightened the deliberate crudeness of his work.
