WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

CHRISTIE’S, PA RIS SEPTEM­BER 6—25

Hong Kong Tatler - - Art Agenda -

Best known for es­chew­ing tra­di­tional stan­dards of beauty in his art, French painter and sculp­tor Jean Dubuf­fet of­ten used oil paint mixed with ma­te­ri­als such as sand, gravel, tar and straw to cre­ate his paint­ings, re­sult­ing in a tex­tured sur­face. Dubuf­fet em­braced the idea of prim­i­tivism in art and was a staunch col­lec­tor of out­sider art. Christie’s takes a look back at his work from the 1960s, the decade that saw the birth of his famed Paris Cir­cus and L’hour­loupe se­ries of paint­ings. CHRISTIES.COM
