portrait of the artist as a young man
This is a sweet picture. While in Paris, I had a visit over a raspberry mousse cake with my cousin Muriel. She had found in some family album this photo: Taken in the late 40's, just after the war, it is the grand debut of my father's acting career. During the war he was imprisoned in a concentration camp in Austria, from which he escaped. he came back home to Paris, gaunt and resolute to start his artist life. He had the main role in this comedy that set him on a life path .It is him in the straw hat in the middle.
