Jean Dubuffet

1901-1985

Jean Debuffet was born in Le Havre, France. In 1918 he went to Paris to study painting at the Academie Julian but left after sixth months to work independently. By 1924 he had given up on art and took over his father’s wine business, not painting again until 1933. He began to produce masks and puppets, but this bout of creativity was short-lived and it was not until 6 years later that Debuffet dedicated himself to a career in art.
