Homme au Chapeau - 1951

Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985)

My first Dubuffet, purchased some time in the mid-sixties from the Galerie Rive Droite for About $1,600.
This little painting stayed with me until about 1987 when, newly divorced and thinking that I needed the money, I sold it for $90,000, bought it back and resold it for $125,000.
Over the next two years it traversed the market eventually selling to a dealer for about $400,000.
