Mario Pasquale Comensoli wird am 15. April 1922 in Lugano geboren. 1943 erhält er als Autodidakt ein Stipendium der Fondazione Torricelli, das ihm den Besuch von Kursen an der Kunstgewerbeschule Zürich und von Vorlesungen an der ETH Zürich erlaubt. Sein erstes Bild, "Piccolo Paesaggio", 1944 entstanden, wird vom Museo Civico, Lugano, angekauft. Im gleichen Jahr übersiedelt Comensoli dauernd nach Zürich. 1946 erste Reise nach Paris, 1962 nach Rom, 1953 erste grosse Ausstellung im Helmhaus Zürich. Seine wichtigsten Bilderzyklen heissen "Velofahrer", "Lavoratori in blù", "Tell", "Cinema", "Discovirus" und "Bewegte Jugend". Zahlreiche Aufträge für Wandbilder und Fresken. 1974 erste Retrospektive in Lugano, 1985 die zweite in Aarau, 1989 die dritte in Zürich und 1998 die vierte, wiederum in Lugano.

Robert-Georges-Paul Gigi (né le 29 juillet 1926 à Besançon et mort le 6 février 2007), est un journaliste, illustrateur et dessinateur français. Il est fils de Paul Gigi, secrétaire général honoraire de la sous-préfecture de Mayenne, et archiviste bibliothécaire de la même ville. Il se lance dans la bande dessinée après la Libération. A cette époque, celle-ci est méconnue, voire décriée. Robert Gigi se forme à l'atelier de Raymond Poïvet, à Paris. Il réalise sa première bande dessinée : Le gentilhomme de la montagne, pour le quotidien L'Aurore. Il participe ensuite aux Éditions Del Duca et à la Société Parisienne d'Édition, où il se spécialise dans le dessin pour adolescentes : "Fillette", puis "Fillette-Jeune Fille", devenue ensuite "15 ans". Il réalise aussi pour "Francs-Jeux" une histoire de samouraï : Hito où se reflète son admiration pour le cinéma japonais. Il fait également de la publicité et des illustrations couleurs dans "Constellation". Il se lance en 1965, à l'émergence de la BD, dans des œuvres nouvelles : Scarlett Dream, une des premières BD érotiques, avec une héroïne sexy sur un thème de science-fiction, puis Les aventures d'Orion, le laveur de planètes, et surtout Ugaki qui le rendra célèbre.

        Seven Letters

      1960-1968. A collection of early correspondence from Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter to noted British theatre director James Roose-Evans. The letters consist of four TLS, two ALS and one TPcS, dated between 1960-1968 and all boldly signed, "Harold." All but the postcard are folded from mailing with scattered light wear, overall near fine. Also laid in is a program for, Two Plays by Harold Pinter: The Dumb Waiter and The Room. Roose-Evans directed the debut performance of Pinter's The Dumb Waiter as part of a double bill with The Room on March 8, 1960 at The Hampstead Theatre Club, which he had founded the previous year. He and Pinter remained friends after the production and these letters correspond with Pinter's early success and growing popularity. They are light and collegial, with several references to Pinter's breakout play, The Caretaker, which, according to one letter, Roose-Evans was one of the first to read. A charming collection of early letters from one of the most important playwrights of the 20th Century at the start of his career. Further details available upon request. .
