Bernard BUFFET (1928-1999). 2 typescripts signed, and a manuscript written in his name by Pierre Bergé, [February 1958]; 4 and a half pages and 1 and a half pages in-4, and 2 and a half pages in-4. Attached is a manuscript a.s. by André François, Le Trompe-l'oeuf dans la décoration (1 p. in-4); plus 2 pages of an unidentified text on art. Typescript of an interview by André Parinaud [partly published in Arts, February 19, 1958], notably on abstract art ("I am violently against [...] abstract experience is a dead end," "young painting," etc.); he crossed out the last two questions and answers before signing.

Arts asked Buffet to attend the presentation of Christian DIOR's collection (after the couturier's death on October 24, 1957), prepared by Yves SAINT-LAURENT; it was Pierre BERGÉ who wrote (and signed "Bernard Buffet") the text that appeared in Arts on February 5, 1958.
