Mires. 1983 - 1984. Biennale de Venise, Pavillon Français

Paris: Fernand Hazan, 1984. 1st Edition. Oblong quarto, publisher's white cloth, spine and upper board stamped in blue, original illustrated dust jacket.

First edition monograph presenting the French sculptor and painter's penultimate series, published by preeminent art book publisher Fernand Hazan. Known for his distinctive style that rejected traditional artistic conventions, Dubuffet championed Art Brut, a term he coined to describe work produced by self-taught artists, such as psychiatric patients, prisoners, and children. One year before his death in 1985, Dubuffet exclusively worked on his Mires series, explosive canvases characterized by gestural brushstrokes and an extensive, vibrant color palette. A continuation of his "Hourloupe" style that he introduced in the 1960s, the series was first presented at the French Pavilion in the 1984 Venice Biennale, with this monograph published to accompany the exhibition. Lavishly illustrated with color plates, several folding; with an introduction by art historian and critic Daniel Abadie. Text in French. Fine in unclipped dust jacket. Item #8611
