SIDELIGHTS: Andreas Franzke once told CA: "As a student I became familiar with the art and the ideas of Jean Dubuffet. Later on I became a friend of the artist, and I worked with him for many years. He considerably influenced my ideas about art. In my opinion Dubuffet is one of the leading painters of post-World War II Europe, and his impact and influence on American artists is substantial. He was discovered by collectors and museums in America far earlier than in his native France."
