Apartment Houses, Paris

Jean Dubuffet
  • Date: 1946

  • Genre: cityscape
  • Media: charcoal, oil, canvas, sand

The painting Apartment Houses, Paris focuses on urban life. The buildings are tilted, playfully defying architectural integrity. The flattening of the space between the sky, buildings, and civilians seems spontaneous and unprocessed - childlike. Here Dubuffet satirizes conventional, sentimental images of Paris, suggesting instead that the jollity of the city's inhabitants is forced, and false.
