I sent my collection of Foujitas to Tokyo for an exhibition, and
I did put very high sales prices on them, but I have not as far as
I know sold them.
How many Foujitas do you have now?
I have about 12 paintings and about 8 drawings and one
water color. Or 6 drawings and a water color. The sudden interest
of the Japanese in Foujita is rather touching.
They're advertising in the papers.
I noticed that, yes.
Wouldn't it pain you a little to part with your Foujitas?
Well, you know something, I've decided that as I've lived
with my pictures for about 25 years, sometimes closer to 30 years,
I'm really interested in fresh images. I could live in an entirely
fresh way, in a more modern, an apartment that was modern with
modern furniture and some old furniture, and with contemporary paintings,
and trees and an entirely different style. I think I could be
quite happy if I found the right apartment. Having been a dealer,
I was used to the idea of selling and having a change of pictures.
Forming an attachment, then severing it.
That's right, and then forming an attachment to something else.
I've been attached -- it's like people who finally come to a divorce.
Not from any dislike.
