Encounter with a Major XXth century Artist
Imprinting fascinated Jean Dubuffet for over forty years and is an integral part of his creative oeuvre. Throughout his life, in certain intense and active phases, he would not cease to explore the range of different techniques that could be utilized in printing and most of all those of lithography, interpreting and inventing new methods, as to better meet his needs. According to a set of associations and logic distinctive to this artist, each discovery led him directly to a rich field of developments into which he was to rush with perpetual sense of wonder, ignoring the limits of these new fields of investigation.
Created between 1944 – 1984 a selection of the artist’s works were exhibited for the first time at Pera Museum.
