Apparent technical components prove to be enlargements of eyes, mouth, fingers, shoes. The title is Le Dandy. It seems that Jean Dubuffet wanted to expose vanity. It is not clear whether the work is intended as a deconstruction of the character of the person or that it’s making a joke on the person.

In the essay by ArtAtSite this artwork is compared with the following artworks. Check this link for the essay.

The artwork Quantum Cload by Anthony Gormley (London, temporary, picture 1, more information) once stood on a structure inside the Thames, with on the background the elements air and water. This artwork is a good starting point for a creative and meaningful artwork that makes use of the elements which are surrounding the artwork.

This person is incorporated into larger and smaller structures (Human Condition, Agenore Fabbri, Milan, picture 2, more information). It’s a pity for this man that the structures don’t seems to move and therefore this man seems quite lonely.

This statue La Demeure Humanine by Ossip Zadkine (Amsterdam, picture 3, more information) is of a wondrous beauty. The persons are connected with each other and their environment. The material is interesting. The artwork is in dialogue with other coeval works (made by Brague, Piscasso).

This strong woman Mama Branka by Nelson Carrilho (Amsterdam, picture 4, more information) is made of earth, but it is cracked and broken. The woman is looking sad and holding her head slightly turned out of pity. This bronze structure seems to be made of slices of earth. The woman is having her hands nearby and this time this generous woman is not willing to hug. She is apparently full of sorrow and needs time to process this. This is a good and important work.

This artwork structure Molecule Man by Jonathan Borofsky (Berlin, picture 5, more information) is optimistic and is an ode to modern mankind. The persons make close contact with each other, they are standing strong and start to move, they are having fun.
