Description for the presentation 2015-2016 in the National Museum of Modern Art

The question of the representation of landscape is recurrent throughout Dubuffet’s career, the artist devoting many series to it. Le Voyageur sans boussole is one of a series entitled “Paysages du mental” [Landscapes of the Mental], produced between 1951 and 1952, of which the artist said: “These are landscapes of the brain. They aim to show the immaterial world that inhabits the mind of man: turbulent disorder of images, beginnings of images, fading images, tatters of what we have witnessed and facts purely cerebral and internal – visceral, perhaps”.
