The Apparel Wall -the space where we share our tributes to the most influential and inspiring artists that impacted the world of art- is back. This time honor the truly indomitable spirit of Jean Dubuffet, the painter and sculptor founder of the art movement 'art brut'. A man who challenged the conventional cliches of beauty, in favour of a more pure, realistic, mortal approach to the arts.
"Excellent results at Dorotheum’s Contemporary Art evening auction on 5 June 2019. Right at the beginning, a bidding battle on the telephone for Bon Espoir. Paysage avec personnage (Good Hope. Landscape with Figures) by Jean Dubuffet, the founder of “Art Brut”, ended only after 15 minutes, and far above the estimated value, at 735,300 euros."
