Description

Created by the French artist Jean Dubuffet in the 70s, this sculpture shows a woman wearing abstracted rags.

Dubuffet considered art made by children and the mentally ill to be the purest form of expression, and he pioneered this ‘Art Brut‘ (raw art) movement in the 1940s.

Fun Fact! The work’s title comes from the word “chiffonier,” which used to refer to a person dressed in rags, but in the 18th century came to mean a type of worktable with several tiers of shallow drawers.

Location

4 Embarcadero Center, Justin Herman Plaza
