French transcription

See Patricia,

Je suis honteux, mais encore une fois cette musique m´a mis hors de moi… palpitations, sueurs froides, désespoir! Il va falloir analyzer cell. Mais comment envisager alors une participation dans votre ballet ? Vous ne pouvez tout de même pas faire danser votre “femme élite en soie grise” sur l’air de Lulli ou Geminiani. Aujourd´hui je m´en vais dans la verdure, je vous embrasse et excusez moi. Vasarely

Portuguese translation

My dear Patricia,

I'm embarrassed, but once again this song drove me crazy... palpitations, cold sweats, despair! This will need to be analyzed. But how can you imagine participating in your ballet? You still can't make your "elite woman in gray silk" dance to Lulli or Geminiani. Today I'm going to the field, I kiss you and I'm sorry. Vasarely

Victor Vasarely (1906 - 1997) is a unique visual artist in the history of 20th century art. A true star of the 60s and 70s, he stands out in contemporary art by creating a new trend: optical art. We found your brand in fashion; in the song, David Bowie uses one of his paintings for the cover of "Space Oddity"; on the car, he renews the Renault logo; between others.

It is the Vasarely Foundation in Aix-en Provence, in the south of France, which has kept the optical master's artistic heritage alive for forty years and maintains the myth. The building, designed by Victor Vasarely himself, was classified as a historic monument in 2016. It welcomes visitors who want to learn more about the unforgettable and avant-garde work of a world-famous artist whose autographs rarely appear on the market. This letter is the first available in at least 10 years.
