A bright mosaic of colors imitates the crude style of outsider art in Jean Dubuffet’s Parisian street scene from 1944. In 1923, Dubuffet became interested in the art of the mentally ill, after having read Hans Prinzhorn’s Bildnerei der Geisteskranken (Pictures of the Mentally Ill, 1922). Many years later, in 1945, he started collecting these pictures pictures, which he called Art Brut (Raw Art).
