When I am being asked which painters have influenced me, I always name Walter Kampmann.
From: HELLO, MR. KAMPMANN, 1974
Brô gave me the right to paint his faces, and I gave Brô the right to paint my “soul-trees”.
From: COLLABORATION IN ART, 1983
And it was Brô in particular who opened my eyes onto an extraordinary world;
To achieve supreme order through beauty was no longer a Utopia but a well-defined path, a concrete and viable procedure.
Brô and I had made another exchange. It was through him that I came to paint almond eyes set high up in round heads, they were eyes like Micheline’s but above all they resembled those in the mosaics at Ravenna and the paintings at Sienna.
In return, it was through me that he was enabled to paint trees like those of the German painter Walter Kampmann, round, radiant trees with souls and an inner life and a halo-like aureole.
From: Brô, 1996
