Catalogue Note

“Starting in 1947, he created a series of Arab paintings which celebrated their alternative universe of values that countered the European outlook…This newest Dubuffet species is comprised of people at one with their surroundings. He described such individuals as identifying themselves with 'wind, trees, rivers', in other words, their lives demonstrate “the continuity of all things in the world” (Mark Rosenthal, ‘Jean Dubuffet: Master Disrupter’, in: Exh. Cat., New York, Acquavella Galleries, Jean Dubuffet: Anticultural Positions, New York 2016, pp. 16-18).
