From the remarkable Art Brut collection in Lausanne, Switzerland, founded by artist Jean Dubuffet, comes Body, the third volume in a series (following Vehicles and Architecture) created to accompany the Biennale de l’Art Brut, which showcases the diversity of this superb collection of more than 60,000 works of outsider art by creating themed exhibitions. Body offers a wealth of drawings, paintings, photographs, and sculptures, all reflecting the manifold representations of the human body in the outsider art movement. Taken together, the 300 works by 50 artists, all illustrated in color and accompanied by brief biographies and a bibliography, reveal the power of the human body to inspire both artist and observer.
