Jaime Saguer

Of Spanish origin, Jaime Saguer works as a farmhand in the Pyrénées-Orientales. He is sectioned in Limoux in 1942, after being charged with “aggravated assault and public order offences.” Discharged from the psychiatric hospital in 1960, Saguer is placed in an old people’s home. He draws in lead pencil and coloring pencils on small lined or squared notebooks.

Saguer’s doctor, Dr. Dagand, travelled to Paris in 1965 to meet Slavko Kopac, the curator of the Compagnie de l’Art Brut. He gave him a number of notepads of an anonymous patient of whom Jean Dubuffet had already included two works into the collection in 1948. This anonymous patient has turned out to be Jaime Saguer.
