Hot Rod, 1955 Huile et collage sur toile. Signé et daté en bas à droite. H_97 cm L_54,5 cm Provenance: - collection Arnold Fawcus, Paris- très probablement acquis auprès de l'artiste par l'éditeur. "When I first started painting first I was just trying to make a painting you see. Which seemed like a very difficult thing to do. And these paintings were jumped upon as primitives. And I was told that they were good and that I should do more of them. Which did encourage me. And then meeting people like Max and Marcel and eventually some of the others, Man Ray was a great friend of mine in those days. I began to see the possibility of poetry and painting. Poetry and of course humor in painting are the ar © D.R. eas I'm really most interested in."
