quote of the week


Jean Dubuffet  Childbirth  1944

The female body…has long…been associated with a very specious notion of beauty which I find miserable and most depressing. Surely I am for beauty, but not that one…I intend to sweep away everything we have been taught to consider - without question - as grace and beauty [and to] substitute another and vaster beauty, touching all objects and beings, not excluding the most despised.  Jean Dubuffet
