Lot 13 - [ARTAUD Antonin].MANSON Anne.

TWO SIGNED TYPED LETTERS ADDRESSED TO THE DIRECTOR OF LA RUE MAGAZINE. TYPED NOTE RELATING TO THE LETTER ADDRESSED BY ARTAUD, AND AN IMPORTANT 9-PAGE TYPED NOTE WITH SOME CORRECTIONS RELATING TO HIS MEETING WITH ARTAUD, AND A TELEGRAM FROM ANNE MANSON TO THE REVUE LA RUE. "I met Artaud in '36... he had fixed an appointment for me in a workshop on rue Schoelcher which had been lent to him for a few months, a large empty workshop with a bunk, a Mexican hat hanging on the wall and a mask which was for a long time the subject of passionate discussions between Artaud and Doctor Mardrus, Artaud assuring me that this mysterious mask was a duplication of himself and frequently took its place in his bed. Artaud was slow to come, the hour was passing. I decided to leave when I met on the stairs a sort of beggar king, with a shabby suit, with a magnificent look who stopped me to take me back to his house... beware, you tell me Artaud, none deserves trust, there are no respectable people there except the Indians. The fact is that Artaud had led a difficult life in Mexico. Nourished here and there with a camembert sandwich, a gift from a restaurant owner from Marseille, he had sold his last suits and even his shoes to buy the indispensable drug when he left after a few weeks of stay to the North in the country of the Taharumaras (men with swift feet) to learn about the adventure of peyote from Indian sorcerers or to look for the traces of the great esoteric symbols, he will ride into this mountain country on horseback, dressed in an old, oversized canvas suit lent by his friends and wearing pierced tennis sandals.... A hundred times during our friendship, I realized that this man, whose violence was appalling, often got angry only out of disappointed friendship, out of a proudly repressed need for affection which sometimes pushed him to feign extravagance or madness to better conceal his feelings... Unfortunately, many things I owned, including some rather curious talismans that he had drawn, numbered and burnt on the spot, disappeared during the exodus." REMARKABLE TESTIMONY
