Reports d'Assemblages

(Transfer of Assemblages)

Dubuffet not only worked directly on zinc lithographic plates, but also utilized lithographic transfer paper, a specially coated paper from which a design drawn with greasy lithographic crayon or ink can be transferred onto a lithographic plate. In 1961-62 Dubuffet printed some of The Phenomena plates onto transfer paper that he had cut into different shapes. The pieces were arranged to form images of distorted, yet whimsical, faces and figures. The design of each assemblage was then transferred onto a lithographic plate so that multiple impressions could be printed.
