Biography 1951

In Moscow, he visited the Pushkin Museum, where he vainly sought out the works of Wassilij Kandinskij, still state-censored. He however managed to see some of Kazimir Malevic’s masterpieces, preserved at the Tretiakova Gallery. Among his favourite models, Piero della Francesca’s luminary-spatial “theorems” and Andrea Mantegna’s classic syntheses. During a stay in Cannes, he visits Pablo Picasso, then living in Vallauris, a number of times. The Spanish artist was a true myth for all young artists.
