Jean Dubuffet, MOMA's really great show

Soul of the Underground a survey of Jean Dubuffet was a standout exhibition in the Drawing Collection at MOMA. The exhibition focused on his experimental works from the 1940's to the 1960's in drawing and printmaking as he worked with ink and gouache as he followed his own advice to "Look at what lies at your feet! A crack in the ground, sparkling gravel, a tuft of grass, some crushed debris, offer equally worthy subjects for your applause and admiration."
