According to Benezit, West 'saw his representational painting as relating to that of Magritte, a sort of poetic communication beyond words, using association and analogy'. AUTOGRAPH CARD: Bifolium (15.5 x 22 cm.) on blue card. In good condition, lightly aged. The illustration on the front cover, in black ink shaded in white, is signed 'West.', and depicts a sardine can in the shape of a human hand, half-opened to show the skeleton of the hand within. The recto of the second leaf carries the letter to 'Dear John', in red ink, ten lines long. After asking if 'Trasf.' appeared, he turns to Calzadilla, whom he is doubtful about including (in the exhibition catalogue?): 'he seems to spend most of his time these days writing art books and sitting on juries for poetry or painting competitions. Henao is also critical of his position according to recent letters.' He turns to Arturo Schwarz, who has opened a 'Dada exhibition' which he 'helped prepare for the museum. He's a nice person, but since he closed his gallery he spends his time "documenting" the group - along with how many others?' The letter ends: 'How are all the tribe?' EXHIBITION CATALOGUE: pp., 8vo. Stapled. In printed wraps, black on the outside and silver on the inside. With foreword by Juan Calzadilla, seven photographic illustrations of works, and one photograph of West. In fair condition, lightly aged and worn. Inscribed on inside of front cover: 'To John | these lamentable expedients | Philip. | 3-1-82.' Scarce: the only copy on OCLC WorldCat at the Tate Gallery Library. Two hundred of West's works are in the Eugenio Granell Foundation in Santiago de Compostela. From the Philip West archive.
