Printed in two colors on cream Arches wove paper, signed, titled & numbered in pencil. The print has been professionally conserved. Fascinated and inspired by the unfettered art of children and the insane, Dubuffet embraced that freedom himself, noting their work was created “from their own depths and not from the stereotypes of Classical or fashionable art”. Dubuffet’s influence is felt today in the appreciation of Outsider Art, and practice of contemporary graffiti artists. Dubuffet also loved the improvisational music of jazz, which in part inspired the bold, meandering contour lines and experimental textures found in his work. This influence is seen and felt in the joyous, dancing figure here. “Fougere Au Chapeau” or “Fern in the Hat”, is one of the artist’s better known prints; an early, large and witty figure subject in color by the father of the Art Brut movement or “Raw Art”, which he founded in 1947.
