WikiPaintings.org - the encyclopedia of painting Featured artwork 1954, Jean Dubuffet Dubuffet's heady experience in the country and rejection of art education is evident in this painting. The heavily textured surface depicts a cow, rendered in the child-like innocence of patients held in psychological facilities. The uninhibited, savage approach to the canvas exemplifies the concepts of what Dubuffet termed Art Brut - the image seems entirely unschooled in the traditions of landscape. The image is thus at odds with the notions of 'high art', and approaches art making from the direction of artistic purity uninfluenced by cultural advancement.
