"This book traces the history of the concept of Art Brut, which is Inseparable from the work and personality of the man who did the most, for the appreciation and preservation of these remarkable works. The account is completed by biographical notes on the artists featured and an extensive bibliography. The works reproduced, mostly from the collection created by Dubuffet, have retained their subversive freedom, which continues to fascinate and inspire artists and collectors today."--BOOK JACKET.
