Fondation Dubuffet

Spread over two sites, this foundation offers a complete overview of the works of Jean Dubuffet.


Jean Dubuffet wanted his works to remain together, even after his death. The foundation was set up in his lifetime, in 1973, to introduce the public to all his work.

The artist's pieces have been divided between two sites. To the south of Paris, a private 19th-century mansion houses temporary exhibitions over three floors, displaying various artistic periods.

The second site is a few miles from the capital, in Val-de-Marne. This houses the largest work of art ever created by Dubuffet, "La Closerie Falbala", classified as an historic monument, representing a white garden ringed with black, containing a villa (where the artist liked to rest). Right next to this monumental creation, the artist's former studios have been converted into exhibition rooms. More than 1000 of his works are on show here, including paintings, sculptures, gouaches, architectural models, etc. A journey into the mind of Dubuffet.
