Martial Raysse (2)

Sinds ik zijn werk lang geleden zag in
Chateau Grimaldi / Musée Picasso, Antibes (Fr.)
was het ‘vormend’ voor mij.
Ik bewonder de moedige stappen
die hij in zijn werk zette:
de méditerrane kunstenaar
Martial Raysse.
Zijn oeuvre en leven
zijn grillig en bedachtzaam,
inventief en vanzelf sprekend,
het ging niets ‘uit de weg’.

Un esprit très aigu”,*
il l’a lui-même et surtout

un esprit courageux!
