Framed Vintage Poster by Jean Duboffet, France, 1970's

A beautiful original lithographic exhibition poster for French painter, sculptor, and printmaker Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) at the Fondation Maeght in 1967.Jean Dubuffet’s work is marked by a rebellious attitude toward prevailing notions of high culture, beauty, and good taste. He began making art in earnest at age 41, after a stint in the army and a successful career as a wine merchant. The next four decades were tremendously prolific: he wrote poetry and theoretical texts, played jazz, experimented widely with art-making materials and techniques, and worked in many mediums, including painting, drawing, printmaking, large-scale outdoor sculpture, and what he called “animated painting”—works bridging painting, sculpture, dance, and theater, and featuring live performers.
