Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985), Jean Dubuffet: The Last Two Years, The Pace Gallery, New York, 2012

A really handsome catalogue for an exhibition of Dubuffet's at The Pace Gallery, in 2012, featuring works from his last two years. An informative introductory essay by Harmony Murphy leads the way and then his last works are spread out with a nice rhythm on both sides of this accordion. The cardboard covers give this publication a really nice physicality and touch. All of this combines to give these kind of scratchy works, a space in which they can breathe, and do their work on the viewer.

See below for another catalogue from Pace of Dubuffet's works.

Page dimensions 11" (h) x 9.5" (w), 16 pages, and when fully opened 6ft 4".
