Not long after his arrival in the artists’ city in 1947, his extraordinary talent was recognized and soon won him considerable fame; particularly his unique sculptures fashioned of wood, stone, wire and a strong hemp fibre attracted considerable attention.
The resulting figures display a spirited eccentricity, born of the mixture of the powerful effects of tribal art and subject matters that are full of allusions and often also ironical and disrespectful.

 Harvard University Art Museums -Collections Catalog
This catalogue of 16th-century French drawings from the collections of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris, bears witness to a great period in the history of drawing.
The works reflect a crucial century in the history of French art, when lavish court patronage and the presence of innovative Italian masters precipitated revolutionary changes not only in the style and subject matter of French art, but in that of European art as a whole.
So much has been lost from this period that its artistic achievement is little known outside France; thus this richly illustrated catalogue makes possible an opportunity to explore and better appreciate this period of French history and the role of drawings within it.
