About the Exhibition

La Chiffoniere by Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985, b. Le Harve, France) is a 22-foot high, 4,500 pound piece, constructed of 1/2” stainless steel and marked with black epoxy linear tracings. It was conceived in 1972, completed late in 1978, and is among the last of the artist’s large-scale sculptures. He has, since 1977, concentrated solely on painting.

Fantastic, lighthearted, fun yet formidable, La Chiffonniere is an appropriate addition to the cityscape. “La Chiffonniere is a wonderfully whimsical welcome to springtime for New York and a delightful and dramatic illustration of how art can enliven our public environment,” commented Mrs. Doris C. Freedman, Chairman of the Public Arts Council and President of the Municipal Art Society.
