In 1962, Dubuffet began to make his “Hourloupes.” Inspired by a set of doodles in red ballpoint executed while talking on the phone, the Hourloupes present jigsaw puzzle figures whose outlined parts seem part of an anatomy that never quite fits together. Explaining the separateness of his imaginative creations from the real works, Dubuffet explained, “many artists begin with a pig and make sausages. I begin with sausages and make a pig.” Perceval and Faribolus are typical Hourloupes in their skewed, disjointed stance, and their boisterous, antic behavior.
