1886-1964 (Switzerland)

The sensual drawings, paintings and murals of the ubiquitous Corbaz were brought to Jean Dubuffet’s attention by Jacqueline Porret-Forel, a young doctor at a Swiss psychiatric clinic. The oeuvre speaks of a mysterious and seemingly autobiographical love-affair, often in the form of books or folded sheets, and features unusual materials such as petals and packaging, delicately sewn into the artwork to create a unique form of collage.
