Détail of a letter

1960.

The “new adventures” date the fame coming up for ARMAN.

 

He always said how much luck, along his journey, consisted in "meeting the right persons at the right time".

IRIS CLERT remains an essential step in his story, just like for many other artists at that time, those on their way too at that time and who will also see the recognition of consecration.

 

Even if the word “precursory” is a quality which is declined only for male (in French), this woman remains the one who will have taken all the risks in the engagement of her choices.

 

Without really recovering the (financial) fruits for this later on when everybody will be on rails.

 

She will continue nevertheless to be defined as engaged until the end for “unlimited freedom”.
