Galerie Buchholz shows more than a few brilliant artists. Sometimes, the gallery organizes shows that we would love to organize too — and we love Daniel and Christopher for doing so. In this case about famed French author Raymond Roussel who wrote New Impressions of Africa and Locus Solus. Check Buchholz’ shows on RR here and here. Roussel died in 1933 in a hotel in Palermo, the beloved Italian author Leonardo Sciascia wrote about it.
“Docilement une brillante fanfare éclata, sortant d’une foule de pavillons d’inégale grosseur tassés en groupe compact.” Raymond Roussel
Anonymous user comment: “What a beautiful colour this yellow is! I love book covers being used on invitations or in art works themselves. I did not know about this author and am now very intrigued to find him and read him….he befriended Jean Cocteau in drug rehab.
Great learning of a new author from an exhibition invite. The show sounds intriguing too… Here is quite a nice review from New York Times: new york times review”
