He’s interesting to me as an intelligent artist who never produced comparably intelligent work. Knowing and liking him for decades, I can’t explain why not. Well-educated in France, always sympathetic to avant-garde aspirations, he came to America initially in the 1960s as a subsidized guest of a graduate school program. In America he would have graduated summa cum laude from an arts college or perhaps a research university. For some five decades, he has written, lectured, and exhibited both in America and in his native France, indeed maintaining studios in both countries. He married intelligent women and cultivated intelligent friends. He reads art magazines in more than one language.
