JEAN DUBUFFET: METAMORPHOSES OF LANDSCAPE. Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, 2016. Published by Hatje Cantz Verlag, Ostfildern. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 228 pp. with 160 col. 32 x 28 cm. ISBN 9783775740999 In English.
Publisher's description: Jean Dubuffet is one of the most influential and versatile artists of the postwar period. With his novel aesthetic inspired by Art Brut (a term he coined), Dubuffet succeeded in breaking away from modernist conventions and redefining the concept of art, and in doing so leaving his mark on the second half of the 20th century and exercising a considerable influence on numerous young artists. Jean Dubuffet: Metamorphoses of Landscape -- the first substantial English-language Dubuffet monograph in decades -- is published for a large-scale retrospective at the Fondation Beyeler, with around 100 major works from all of the artist's important creative phases. It opens with an exploration of Dubuffet's multilayered notion of landscape, which the artist transforms into bodies, faces or objects. Dubuffet experimented with new techniques and materials, and in the process created a completely independent, fascinating pictorial cosmos. Besides important paintings and sculptures from international museums and private collections, the book also presents the ensemble of figures from Dubuffet's stage play Coucou Bazar, his unparalleled Gesamtkunstwerk synthesis of the arts.
