March 1962
New Yorker;3/17/1962, Vol. 38 Issue 4, p36
The article profiles Jean Dubuffet, an artist and the so-called hero of the Museum of Modern Art. He was described by newspaper writer John Canaday in "The Times," as the most important French artist since the Second World War, a position he can be said to hold without serious challengers. He was born in Le Havre and went to live in Paris, France at seventeen. He claims that he remained aloof from commerce and concentrated instead on art.
