Observations

In 1987, I was looking for new prints for my Paris gallery. I thought of Mark di Suvero. The first time I went to New York I saw di Suvero's wood and metal sculpture at the Whitney. Later I admired his outdoor sculptures. He was living on a barge on the Saone river. I asked if he ever thought about doing more prints. Mark was working wearing a red helmet in a  warehouse on the river. I proposed the idea & he laughed and said: “I guess you were reading my mind. I want to do some lithographs in France. Maybe you could help me find a good print shop, as you seem to have some experience in the field."  I then thought about my friend Franck Bordas who had inherited his grandfather's print shop having produced prints by Picasso and Chagall. I introduced the two and this was the start of a fructuous collaboration as di Suvero did two original lithographs for my gallery. That was the beginning of my friendship with Mark,one of the most important American sculptors. -CC
