Dubuffet takes Manhattan


When the New York Times “Inside Art” column mentioned “Milord la Chamarre,” our favorite Jean Dubuffet sculpture–soon to be moved out of its corner, we hope–(see Roberta’s post of Sept. 24), our hearts went pit-a-pat. According to the Times, “Milord” lived on Park Avenue, on the plaza in front of the Seagram Building in 1974. A great location in our opinion, and at eye level, too.

“Milord” is related to Dubuffet’s “L’Hourloupe Cycle,” with its jigsaw-puzzle-like shapes, and four of the Hourloupes were installed last week by Pace-Wildenstein Gallery near “Milord’s” old site, on Park Avenue between 54th and 57th streets.
