I met Arthur Tress for the first time in the late 1970s, in Arles. He was a very close friend of the French novelist Michel Tournier. They shared a passion for the absurd and nonsense in Lewis Carroll’s work. Arthur was much better known at the time, but has been since forgotten, which is a pity.
He still lives on the West Coast. This month, an exhibition devoted to his work is held in San Anselmo, CA.
