CLAUDE ROY (+ 1997)

      • - The typical French connosieur, poet and essayist (1915-1997).
      • Drawn early into political commitment, he joined the PCF, but became disenchanted during the 1950s and moved to a nonconformist liberal humanism. His essays, travel writings, and theatre criticism show the same
        whimsical ebullience as his informative and revealing autobiographies, Moi je (1969), Nous (1972), and Somme toute (1976).

      • He was some sort of art cowboy working from Picasso, Goya or chinese painters and of course Modigliani...
      • I will focus on "Modigliani" The taste of our times by Claude Roy, Geneva. collection directed by Albert Skira / (Lausanne, Impr. réunies), 1958.
      • He was not a real expert in Modigliani, but at his time he was in quite good consideration, here I include a brief list of some of the works he published (they are not all, but they can give an idea).
      • ,

      Actually his opinion is perfect to fill the notes & records for the auction houses.
      But only when it also have the Ceroni name in the list...

      If a Modigliani painting only bears the opinion by Roy , it will never hit the floor of the main auction houses
      Definitively not a reliable or trustworthy source for cataloguing.
