“I had given up (around 1950) any ambition of making a career as an artist… ..I had lost all interest in the art shown in galleries and museums, and I no longer aspired to fit in that world. I loved the paintings done by children, and my only desire was to do the same for my own pleasure.”
Jean Dubuffet (July 31, 1901 – May 12, 1985)
