  • Well liked this statue because I think it's perfect to put in a public garden. It brought me joy and joy and I loved this one. The big advantage of this statue is that it is 4 meters high and it represents a standing figure dressed in different colors. It's funny and funny. This was made in 1998 by Richard Dhoedt with resin. Namely, if you love this artist, you can visit his workshops in Périgny-sur-Yerre (RER A2).

  • Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) is the "inventor" of what he calls "Art Brut" around 1945, which could be the result of ramblings of degenerate or mentally ill beings (SIC). Indeed, these "crazy sculptures" are made of blocks cut into plates of different colors (blue, red, black and white) and shapes that represent nothing identifiable ... collages he called "Hourloupe" as early as 1962. Dubuffet wants to completely distance himself from what he calls "The Asphyxiating Culture" which is full of codes and conventions!! It was bold and provocative in 1962, but it's a matter of taste and personally I'm not sensitive to it. But everyone has their own tastes!! The monumental work in epoxy, which is located on the terrace of Jeu de Paume, in the garden of the Tuileries, is called "Bel Costumé ", is supposed to be a dandy style character, in harlequin costume, with bursting shapes. It was originally intended to go to the National Galery in Washington in 1973, based on a model, whose finished product finally "landed", post mortem of its author, at the Jardin des Tuileries in 1998.
