JEAN DUBUFFET was born 111 years ago in Le Havre,

France (July 31, 1901).  He was a prominent painter and sculptor.  His

artwork reflected an authentic and humanistic approach

to image-making.  His oil paintings were often thickened

with sand, tar, and straw, creating an unusually textured surface.

He died at the age of 83 on May 12, 1985.
