Dubuffet and his brutal art

Tapiès' Cloud and Chair atop the Tapiès Museum in Barcelona

Great, another mystery solved!!! Another band's name clarified, another overt reference finally picked up on. After The Cloud Room who named themselves after an Art Deco bar in the Chrysler Building, who is the lucky one this time? Art Brut. Taking their inspiration from an art movement initiated by Jean Dubuffet, they have now staged a marvellous coup d'état, by out-googling their inspirators! What's the deal with the picture at the top? Well, I took it in Barcelona, at the Tapiès museum. And his name was recently linked to the Art Brut movement (in a newspaper article I read) and so, we come full circle again. More serendipity! Grrrrreat (see post 7). But to bring an end to the chain of connected events, here is a non-sequitur. Serge Gainsbourg's collection entitled Initials S.G.
