"I may have been troubled by your beauty. Surprising Breton letter, seductive, praising the beauty of nelly kaplan, the genesis of their coming loves."I began by being deeply touched by your memory and your so precise allusion to the words (destroyed, by my fault) that we were able to exchange in the context of a pre-Columbian exhibition. First of all, I have to make a little confession to you in the face of ridicule.
When you came out of this exhibition you invited me to cross Rue de Rivoli to introduce me to someone, shame, yes, shame of me, I did not hear the name of that person and I did not allow myself to have you repeat it as one does not bother in America, and we are right! This led me to find myself from a left-handed, unexampled and practically mute - it would still have been a hundred times better for me to be silent - in front of this same person, that I was drawn between the illusion of recognizing and the impossibility of establishing who she was. My disgrace, at this hour, was filled with far too flattering words that came from her and that I already suffer very badly under other circumstances.
Still, I was too disarmed to deal with it. I don't know, at a distance, how long it took me to assume and above all to convince myself that you could have put me in the presence of Isabel gance. Please excuse me as soon as possible with him. His face alone is not one of those we have the right to forget.
What he wanted to tell me, regardless of my embarrassment that you and he can measure now, finds the way to delight me beyond confusion. Since then, I have sometimes wondered about the possible causes of this misadventure. If you allow me to be quite sincere, I may have been troubled by your beauty and by the circumstances in which we came to connect conversation. I like to think this better than to admit that I have been a victim of these powers that have shown me their hostility enough about "magic art" and that I have been able to awaken in you (the devil knows only why.
It is true, however, that you had spoken the word polyvision, which should have been enough to lift the veil of these few minutes. No, definitely, I don't understand.
And here it is under the name of "magirama" that your show is presented. From this show, to which - little by little I know - I wanted to attend alone, let me tell you that he upset me. I absolutely share your hopes about the art formula that emerges from it.
It makes for me strident return of swallows in our sky (.) a no doubt - and thanks to you - a new structure of time is here in germ, which scholars and philosophers are ingenuity to discover, but which will probably only be revealed from new emotional states, from the order of those whom Isabel gance and you arouse precisely. "I accuse," that my chance of today is perhaps not to have known in its original version, is a work that would suffice to devote to the greatest one who conceived and executed it. Would you please tell him that I proclaim his genius and, intimately, that I make a great place for him in my courtyard.
Nelly kaplan, I'm fucking your hands. I wish you everything you can aspire to. To you the kingdom of the earth. A few days after this letter, at the end of January 1957, Breton wrote to nelly kaplan: "I think endlessly of you. I am contemplating, I am trying to consider as calmly as possible the means to dominate the situation.Don't forget I love you. At the end of the letter Breton evokes the silent film made by abel gance in 1919, I accuse.
