Biography and art, auction, artworks, interview, statement, website:
For Alfonso Ossorio and Jean Dubuffet 'the art of the insane and the tormented, the art of the institutionalized and imprisoned, became an art of liberation representing freedom in a claustrophobic world. The 'formlessness' of Raw Art was as much a confirmation for them, at mid-century, as the traditional formality of African art had been for the Cubists at the end of the [previous] century.
