Jeanne Tripier

Jeanne Tripier lives in the district of Montmartre, working as a saleswoman in a department store. At the age of fifty-eight she becomes fascinated with the doctrines of spiritualism and begins to produce drawings, embroideries, and works in crochet. Also writing texts, she regards all her creations as mediumistic revelations. In 1934, she is interned in the psychiatric hospital of Maison-Blanche, where she continues her creative work. Frequently inserting little drawings in black, violet, or blue ink into her texts, she might also add dyes, nail varnish, or sugar.

Jean Dubuffet never met Jeanne Tripier, who after her death was found to have left behind an extensive body of work: 300 drawings, 50 pieces of embroidery and 2,000 written texts. Dr Beaudouin gave a bag containing her works to Jean Dubuffet.
