Cover and dedicatory pages from Jean L'Anselme's Poèmes à la sourieuse rose [Poems to the smiling rose]
(Genève : L.E.C., 1948), a group of pieces written by L'Anselme with his "unschooled" left hand,
in an exercise drawing on the tenets of Art Brut, the school of artistic and linguistic
experimentation defined by Jean Dubuffet, a champion of L'Anselme
and the dedicatee of this volume.
The exhibition gallery is closed while the library's building is under renovation.
