Lithographie n° 1

Pierre Soulages

A dedication copy to Alvin Epstein (1925-2018), who was a celebrated classical stage actor and director who appeared in the Broadway premiere of Waiting for Godot and went on to become widely known for his mastery of works by Samuel Beckett. He was a founding member of the American Repertory Company as well as the Yale Repertory Theater and was long affiliated with nonprofit and regional theater. Epstein met and befriended Pierre Soulages and Pierrette Bloch while studying mime in Paris with Marcel Marceau, and the friendships continued whenever they visited New York.
