Palazzo Franchetti is currently exhibiting works from three major series by the prolific French painter and father of Art Brut, Jean Dubuffet. The show, simply titled Jean Dubuffet & Venezia, honors Dubuffet’s affection for the city of Venice where he debuted two major series during his career: Hourloupe at the Palazzo Grassi in 1974 and Mires (‘Sights’) in the French pavilion at the 1984 Biennale. The exhibition includes numerous works from both Hourloupe and Mires as well as Célébration du sol. The paintings from Mires, as seen in our image gallery, exemplify Dubuffet’s Art Brut or “raw art” style with vibrant hues and charged networks of expressive marks.
