LE MIROIR DE PERSONNE
LIONEL RAY, BERNARD ALLIGAND
Aragon was the first to recognize his literary talent.
Lionel Ray, writer and essayist is also one of the greatest French poets.
«Si je n’étais pas écrivain, je serai annaliste ou horloger.
Je m’occuperais du temps, dont nul ne sait d’où il vient ni ce qu’il est.»
Generous and inventive in his research into the effects of matter, the artist painter Bernard Alligand sublimates this collection of sensitive and spectacular compositions.
