Stapled, tan wraps with black titles. Very light edge and corner wear but with aging, toning of rather inexpensive paper on which this catalogue was published. A few interior pages have dogears. This is a copy of the uncommon catalogue with which the artist, Jean Dubuffet, introduced Art Brut to the world. Dubuffet defined Art Brut as "art created outside the boundaries of official culture; Dubuffet focused particularly on art by those on the outside of the established art scene, such as psychiatric hospital patients and children." In the US we now call this "outsider art," a term which encompasses most self-taught artists. This show at Galerie Rene Drouin came moslry from Dubuffet's collection and introduced such artists as Aloyse, Miguel Hernandez, Jean Mar, Raymond Gie, and many, many others. Today art brut/outsider art has become a vibrant part of museum collections and gallery exhibitions, but, in many ways, the acceptance of this art began with this show and its catalogue. ; B&W Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; Unpaginated pages
