PREFACE TO THE EXHIBITION CATALOG LANDSCAPED TABLES, LANDSCAPES OF THE MIND. AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT. New York, Galerie Pierre Matisse, 1952. One page in-4 in ink. 1 page in-4 in ink. ... The paintings made in 1950 and 1951 which are presented in this exhibition are closely linked, like all my work of recent years, to the specific character of the material I use. I say character as one would speak of the character of an animal, because I must warn you that I don't see much difference (metaphysically) between the paste I spread and a cat, a trout or a bull. My dough is a being like them. Less circumscribed, of course, more emulsified, stranger in nature, certainly much stranger... Attached is an autograph note in pencil by Noël Arnaud, specifying that this text was translated into English with Marcel Duchamp's help.
