Research on Art Brut

SOLD OUT: "The Psychiatrist Hans Steck and Aloïse": Lecture on October 4

Within the framework of the exhibition "Aloïse. Le ricochet solaire" (Aloïse. The Solar Ricochet), the Collection de l'Art Brut is happy to invite you to a lecture by Florence Choquard, a historian of psychiatry, who will be speaking on the topic  "The Psychiatrist Hans Steck and Aloïse."

Hans Steck (1891-1980), a Swiss psychiatrist and professor of medicine, took great interest in the creations produced by his patients, specially by those at the Psychiatric Hospital of Cery, where he began working in 1920, and where he was later (1936) appointed director. He played a major role in the discovery of the oeuvre of Aloïse, a patient confined to La Rosière (Gimel) , an annex of Cery. It was the visual quality of Aloïse's work, its esthetic impact, that Hans Steck came to appreciate in her production.
