Dubuffet

An artist who I’d never encountered until an exhibition at the Morgan Library and Museum this week. I still don’t really know about his life, except that he only took up art seriously in his 40s (like another of my favourite artists Agnes Martin), and was remarkably diverse in his style.

Touchingly, when he first began to paint he wrote to a friend that “I must learn to draw properly.”
