Précieux envoi autographe daté de Janvier 1970 et signé de Samuel Beckett à son ami le peintre Geer (Van Velde) et à sa femme Lise. Agréable exemplaire. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, un des 100 exemplaires hors commerce numérotés sur B.F.K. de Rives, seuls grands papiers avec 642 autres B.F.K. de Rives. Précieux envoi autographe daté de Janvier 1970 et signé de Samuel Beckett à son ami le peintre Geer (Van Velde) et à sa femme Lise. Agréable exemplaire. « Que dire de ces plans qui glissent, ces contours qui vibrent, ces corps comme taillés dans la brume, ces équilibres qu'un rien doit rompre, qui se rompent, et se reforment à mesure qu'on regarde ? Comment parler de ces couleurs qui respirent, qui halètent ? de cette stase grouillante ? de ce monde sans poids, sans force, sans ombre ? Ici tout bouge, nage, fuit, revient, se défait, se refait. Tout cesse, sans cesse. On dirait l'insurrection des molécules, l'intérieur d'une pierre un millième de seconde avant qu'elle ne se désagrège. C'est ça la littérature. » (La Peinture des van Velde ou Le monde et le pantalon, in Cahiers d'Art n°11 - 12, Paris 1945)   Beckett ne parle pas ici, malgré les apparences, de son œuvre littéraire mais de la peinture de Geer Van Velde, ajoutant quelques lignes plus loin : « [Bram] Van Velde peint l'étendue. G[eer] Van Velde peint la succession. » Cet éloge, publié à l'occasion de la double exposition des Van Velde, Geer chez Maeght et Bram à la galerie Mai, est le premier texte d'importance sur ces peintres alors à peu près inconnus du public : « On ne fait que commencer à déconner sur les frères Van Velde. J'ouvre la série. C'est un honneur. » Il est aussi le premier texte critique écrit directement en français par un jeune écrivain irlandais qui n'a encore jamais publié en France. Ainsi, le premier et plus important écrit sur l'art de Beckett, composé à l'aube de sa carrière littéraire, instaure, dès l'origine, une relation fondamentale entre son œuvre en gestation et la peinture de ses amis : « Aussi a - t - on souvent lu ce texte en creux, ou en miroir, comme une des rares désignations de la poétique (à venir) de Beckett par lui - même, une sorte de programme anamorphique d'écriture » (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique par Pierre Vilar) Véritable déclaration d'intention du dramaturge, ce texte fondamental - dont Beckett confesse dès l'introduction la valeur introspective : « avec les mots on ne fait que se raconter » - inaugure la période créatrice la plus fructueuse de l'écrivain. En effet, à l'instar d'Apollinaire et de Cendrars, Beckett puise dans les problématiques artistiques de ses contemporains le ferment de son écriture à venir par « la mise en cause la plus profonde des présupposés narratifs, figuratifs ou poétiques. » (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur) L'influence majeure de la peinture moderne sur la structure - ou déstructuration - narrative du théâtre et des romans de Beckett sera révélée et analysée par de nombreux penseurs, dont Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva ou Maurice Blanchot. C'est justement à partir de la peinture des Van Velde, de Geer, puis de Bram, que Beckett formalise cette volonté de traduire la question picturale en dramaturgie. Ainsi refuse - t - il les décors de Nicolas de Staël pour En attendant Godot car : « Il faut que le décor sorte du texte, sans y ajouter. Quant à la commodité visuelle du spectateur, je la mets là où tu penses. Crois - tu vraiment qu'on puisse écouter devant un décor de Bram, ou voir autre chose que lui ? » (Lettre à Georges Duthuit, 1952). Lorsqu'il rencontre Geer en 1937, « Beckett traverse une crise existentielle majeure, il vient de remodeler son premier roman Murphy, refusé par un grand nombre d'éditeurs, il sombre dans l'alcoolisme, quitte l'Irlande et s'installe définitivement à Paris » (Le Pictural dans l'œuvre de Beckett, Lassaad Jamoussi). Il revient d'un long voyage artistique en Allemagne où il s'est imprégné d'œuvres classiques et d'art contemporain - c'est lors de ce voyage qu'il découvre les Deux hommes contemplant la lune de Caspar David Friedrich, à l'origine de En attendant Godot. L'art est alors au cœur de sa réflexion créatrice et l'amitié qui va le lier à Geer puis plus tard à Bram et à leur sœur Jacoba (avec laquelle il entretint peut - être une relation plus qu'amicale) va profondément influencer sa vie et son écriture. Son premier écrit sur l'art est une courte notice sur Geer Van Velde dont il impose les œuvres à sa nouvelle amante Peggy Guggenheim à l'occasion de la création de sa galerie londonienne. Malgré l'échec relatif de l'exposition (qui suit celle de Kandinsky), il obtient de Peggy une bourse d'un an pour son ami. James Knowlson avance même que « si Beckett a longtemps gardé des liens étroits avec Peggy, c'est d'abord et avant tout parce qu'elle était susceptible de donner un sérieux coup de pouce à ses amis artistes, à commencer par Geer Van Velde. » (in Beckett p. 474) Enigmatique, la petite note que Beckett rédige alors à la demande de Peggy contient déjà en germe la pensée du dramaturge : « Believes painting should mind it on business, i.e. colours. i.e no more say Picasso than Fabritius, Vermeer. Or inversely.  » (« Pense que la peinture devrait se mêler de ses propres affaires, c'est - à - dire la couleur, c'est - à - dire pas plus de Picasso que de Fabritus ou Vermeer. Et inversement. »)   Plus lents à croître, son amitié pour Bram et son intérêt pour sa peinture modifient peu à peu le regard de Beckett sur la peinture de Geer et lorsque, dix ans après sa première rencontre avec les frères, il écrit Le Monde et le Pantalon, Beckett met à jour une dualité symbolisée par ce titre tiré d'une anecdote placée en exergue de l'article. Le monde, c'est l'œuvre « imparfaite » de Dieu créé en six jours à laquelle le tailleur oppose la perfection de son pantalon achevé en six mois. La relation entre cette anecdote et les frères Van Velde est peut - être à chercher dans le second essai que Beckett leur consacre en 1948, Peintres de l'empêchement (Derrière le miroir n° 11/12) : « L'un d'eux dira : Je ne peux voir l'objet, pour le représenter, parce qu'il est ce qu'il est. L'autre : je ne peux voir l'objet, pour le représenter, parce que je suis ce que je suis. Il y a toujours ces deux sortes d'empêchement, l'empêchement - objet et l'empêchement - œil. [...] Geer Van Velde est un artiste de la première sorte [...], Bram Van Velde de la seconde. ». Résistance de l'objet ou impuissance de l'artiste, cette fable, « véritable noyau narratif premier en forme de kôan zen » (P. Vilar), se retrouvera ensuite dispersée dans l'ensemble de l'œuvre de Beckett et occupera plus particulièrement une place centrale dans Fin de Partie, dont Roger Blin, note par ailleurs la similitude avec l'œuvre de Geer : « Il était ami à cette époque des frères Geer et Bram van Velde, hollandais et peintres tous deux. Geer était un peintre dans la lignée de Mondrian. J'ai le sentiment que Beckett voyait Fin de partie comme un tableau de Mondrian, avec des cloisons très nettes, des séparations géométriques, de la géométrie musicale. » (R. Blin, Conversations avec Lynda Peskine in Revue d'Esthétique).    L'affinité grandissante de Beckett avec l'œuvre de Bram Van Velde et l'énergie qu'il dépense pour défendre son travail, notamment auprès de la galerie Maeght ou de son ami, l'historien d'art Georges Duthuit, se feront sans doute aux dépens de ses relations avec Geer. Cependant, malgré quelques malentendus, leur amitié ne sera jamais rompue, ni le dialogue silencieux mais agité que l'écrivain entretient avec l'œuvre du petit frère van Velde dont il possédait deux grandes toiles : « Le grand tableau de Geer me fait enfin des signes. Dommage qu'il ait si mal tourné. Mais ce n'est peut - être pas vrai. » (lettre à Georges Duthuit, mars 1950) « Geer dégage un grand courage. Des idées un peu tranchantes, mais peut - être seulement en apparence. Je l'ai toujours beaucoup estimé. Mais pas assez je crois. » (lettre à Mania Péron, août 1951) La mort de Geer Van Velde en 1977 affecte profondément Beckett et coïncide avec une période d'intense nostalgie durant laquelle l'écrivain décide de se livrer à un « grand ménage » dans sa demeure pour vivre entre des « murs gris comme le propriétaire ». Confiant ses états d'âme à son amie, la décoratrice de théâtre Jocelyn Herbert, Beckett témoigne de l'indéfectible affection qu'il porte au peintre depuis  quarante ans : « plus de toiles sous les yeux, y compris celle du grand Geer Van Velde derrière le piano ». Précieux témoignage de l'amitié de ces compagnons de route qui, depuis le premier roman de Beckett pour lequel ils vérifiaient ensemble la vraisemblance de la partie d'échecs opposant Murphy à M. Endon, ont affronté ensemble les grands enjeux de la modernité : « C'est qu'au fond, la peinture ne les intéresse pas. Ce qui les intéresse, c'est la condition humaine. Nous reviendrons là - dessus. » (Beckett à propos des frères Van Velde, in Le Monde et le Pantalon)

        Plexus. Edizione italiana

      Edizione Dellavalle, Torino 1969 - 7 voll. in 8, pp. 140 ogni vol. con ill. e fotografie n. t. Tutto il pubblicato dell'edizione italiana di questa rivista legata al mondo underground e della controcultura. Di notevole interesse il fatto che il comitato di redazione fosse composto da personaggi di grande rilevanza come Fernanda Pivano, Adriano Spatola, Gianrenzo Morteo e Franco Giachino Nichot. Il direttore era il pittore e giornalista Valerio Miroglio. Tema centrale della rivista (tributaria per le copertine e molti articoli dell'edizione francese) era la liberazione sessuale vista pero' come modo per guadagmare spazi per la liberta' di opinione che l'Italia di quegli anni tentava di soffocare. Il primo numero usci' con una fascetta editoriale riportante la scritta 'si prega di non sequestrare'. Il numero pero' venne sequestrato davvero e Miroglio, nellla prefazione del secondo numero, stigmatizza come '.i questurini che sono andati a sequestrare Plexus nelle edicole hanno lasciato dietro di se' ben esposti e in vendita centinaia di migliaia di pubblicazioni maso- sado - inverto - pornografiche del gusto piu' deteriore. Essi hanno sottratto ai lettori una rivista che si ripropone un coerente programma demistificante, che ha una dichiarata ragione culturale. hanno lasciato i fumetti razzisti, le odissee tascabili del legionario ammazzarabi.'. Molti articoli e servizi fotografici sono opera di ottimi autori come Rolan Topor, il fotografo, Lucien Clergue, Yves De Saint Agnes. Nel numero 6 compare una corposa inchiesta sulla omosessualita' con scritti di Roger Peyrefitte, Michel Butor, Alberto Bevilacqua, Fausto Omodei ecc. Nello stesso numero compare anche un intervento intitolato Il bagno padronale giustamente chiamato vanity, opera probabilmente di Miroglio stesso, colpisce molti stereotipi presenti nel mercato immobiliare: La pubblicita' per la casa dice: la casa e' il biglietto da visita del vostro prestigio. E ci risiamo: arrampicatevi! Che bello un poema fatto con la pubblicita' delle societa' immobiliari. Il mutuo, le cambiali, l'ipoteca un letto tutto d'oro. Di notevole interesse anche le recensioni, sia di mostre che libri e spettacoli, in buona parte redatte da Nico Orengo e Paolo Fossati. ITA

        Tèchne. N. 1 (copertina nera)

      Tèchne edizioni, Firenze 1969 - Tèchne. N. 1 (copertina nera). La rivista Tèchne nasce contro l'editoria industriale, considerata pigra e schiacciata da interessi mercantili, nella necessità di costruire uno strumento agile e di immediata distribuzione. In un clima di democratizzazione del pensiero artistico e insieme politico, diffuso anche grazie all'utilizzo del ciclostile, elabora contenuti e forme estetiche "sovversive". Con una particolare attenzione al contemporaneo, mette in circolo le idee vincendo le difficoltà economiche e le altre barriere che si pongono alla comunicazione. Rivista fatta in casa, nata dall'assemblaggio dei contributi di vari poeti corrispondenti da tutto il mondo, Tèchne è, assieme a Lotta Poetica, l'organo più importante del movimento internazionale di Poesia Visiva. Numerosi interventi originali firmati. (Giorgio Maffei e Patrizio Peterlini, Riviste d'Arte d'Avanguardia, Edizioni Sylvestre Bonnard, 2005, pag.146) Fogli sciolti pinzati, cm 34x24 [Attributes: First Edition]

Feuillets perforés avec œillets. Manuscrit complet de la première version de L'Amour baroque, rédigé entre le 18 décembre 1969 et le 16 juin 1970, et à paraître en avril 1971 chez René Julliard. Le livre, premier volet d'une trilogie sentimentale qui se poursuivra avec Y a - t - il un docteur dans la salle ? et L'Angevine, se présente comme un journal intime. Son thème principal, l'amour, constitue l'un des sujets de prédilection de l'auteur. Le narrateur, qui raconte son aventure passionnelle avec une femme endeuillée par la mort de sa fille, joue avec les codes du roman, dans une langue truculente et vive. Faut - il rappeler que les ouvrages de René Fallet, marqués par Rabelais, Molière ou Marcel Aymé, ont inspiré, par leur style fleuri, le cinéma de Michel Audiard, René Clair ou Jean Girault ? Ce manuscrit, offert par René Fallet à l'éditeur Alex Grall, ne saurait être considéré comme un simple manuscrit. Il s'agit bien davantage d'une création plastique qui mêle jeux visuels, jeux de mots, collages et croquis (fleurs, femmes dénudées, têtes grotesques), composée en couleur sur une multitude de papiers de récupération. En effet, Fallet a collecté de nombreux feuillets de papier à entête (ORTF ou Radiodiffusion et télévision belge, Parti communiste français, Éditions Denoël ou Gallimard, Dépêche TV, Miroir du Cyclisme, L'Équipe, First National City Bank, Société de Mythologie Française, Hôtel Intercontinental de Düsseldorf, Société nationale des chemins de fer belges, et autres Ministère des Affaires sociales) qu'il utilise comme support pour son manuscrit, créant un effet graphique et dynamique. Il écrit également au revers de prospectus publicitaires (liquide vaisselle Paic, mouchoirs Kleenex), de photographies de presse originales (peloton du Paris - Roubaix en amateur de cyclisme, tableau de Tom Wesselmann en amateur de femmes nues !), de photographies d'exploitation de films (Fahrenheit 451 de François Truffaut avec Julie Christie et Oskar Werner), de jaquettes de livres (Les Milanais tuent le samedi de Giorgio Scerbanenco, SAS de Gérard de Villiers, Ils ne pensent qu'à ça de Georges Wolinski), de pochettes de disques (Let it be des Beatles), d'images tirées de revues érotiques ou de planches de dessin de presse (Jean - Jacques Sempé). Il enrichit le tout de collages - « L'étudiant français lit beaucoup Camus » - sans oublier d'insérer plusieurs portraits de lui - même, dont une photographie originale en compagnie de Georges Brassens et un notable autoportrait nu ! L'ensemble forme, à dessein, une image joyeuse, jouissive et caustique de la culture populaire au tournant des années 1960 et 1970. Car Fallet, personnage haut en couleurs se disant « anarchiste tendance essuie - glace, de gauche à droite », prend un malin plaisir à détourner avec beaucoup d'humour certains archétypes de la modernité (la pin - up, la ménagère, le couple idéal, le sportif, etc.), dans une démarche qui n'est pas sans évoquer certains mouvements artistiques contemporains (Pop Art, Nouveau Réalisme). Le manuscrit présente d'importantes variantes avec le texte achevé. D'un point de vue structurel, d'une part, Fallet ayant modifié le découpage de ses cent six chapitres, qui seront ensuite organisés en trois parties dans la version publiée. D'un point de vue narratif, d'autre part, puisque l'auteur joue avec les prénoms de ses personnages, chacun d'eux étant nommé de plusieurs manières : ainsi, le mari de l'héroïne parfois prénommé Jean - Louis dans le manuscrit deviendra Jean - Claude par la suite. Par ailleurs, Fallet a réservé ses marges afin d'y inscrire ses corrections, mais aussi de numéroter les lignes et surtout d'indiquer la date de rédaction de chaque passage : ainsi, nous pouvons suivre jour après jour, du 18 décembre 1969 au 16 juin 1970, l'avancée magistrale de son écriture. Le dernier feuillet, non folioté, est constitué d'une liste d'extraits à revoir. Enfin, le manuscrit révèle que l'inspiratrice de ce récit de passion amoureuse n'est autre que Mette Ivers, illustratrice avec laquelle Fallet collaborera et par ailleurs épouse de Sempé, et dont le nom revient très souvent au verso des feuillets ou dans les marges.   Superbe manuscrit, remarquablement composé par René Fallet afin de créer un véritable objet plastique.

      Colombia: Emidela / United Artists, 1969. Collection of vintage black-and-white negatives, contact sheets, and mounted slides and transparencies from the 1969 Italian-French film, "Burn!," here under the original Spanish title "Quemada."

Over 130 images representing on-the-set production, featuring Marlon Brando on a lunch break, director Pontecorvo riding a mule, and members of the cast and crew, as well as images of locals likely used as extras.

After a successful mission, Walker returns to Britain, where he remains for ten years. The same slave revolt he helped initiate is now at war with the replacement regime, and he is sent back to quell the revolt. Seen as a traitor to the natives, Walker is subsequently assassinated, riddled with guilt upon his death. Shot on location in Colombia, Morocco, Italy, and France. All items Near Fine overall, with slides, transparencies, and negatives still in the original film processing envelopes and boxes from the Emidela processing company in Barranquilla, Colombia.

        Very Happy Alexander (Original Saul Bass lithograph poster for the 1968 film)

      N.p.: Cinema V., 1969. Original silkscreen poster designed by legendary title and poster artist Saul Bass for the US release of the 1968 French film "Alexandre le bienheaureux." Printed at the Art Krebs Screen Studios in Los Angeles, and used for the film's premiere at the legendary Cinema II Theater in New York City. Bass' initial design proposals were, in general, too radical for film studios to consider for advertisement, and were invariably altered to suit commercial needs. He produced silkscreens of his original designs himself in non-numbered editions of 50 to 200. These posters were then given to fellow artists, friends, museums, and design magazines, and never offered directly for sale by Bass. 25 x 33 inches. About Fine.
