Tour Aux Jambes
Jean Dubuffet, 1973-1980
Jean Dubuffet’s Tour Aux Jambes can be translated as “Encirclement of Limbs” or “Tower of Legs”. Dubuffet’s treatment of the “limbs” or “legs” is so abstract that it is impossible to see human components, yet it is easy to follow the sculpture’s form and content. This artwork, made of epoxy and polyurethane, is rather like a three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle, though its lines are only on the surface.
Jean Dubuffet took a winding course through a variety of careers from designing central heating to theatrical design and experimental music before achieving worldwide recognition for his unique sculptures in red, white, blue and black. The works of this artist may be seen in New York City’s Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
