Varlin _ November 1973 in Bondo, Val Bregaglia

Varlin _ November 1973 in Bondo, Val Bregaglia

Back in 1973, I had been appointed to "portrait" the Swiss painter Willy Guggenheim, alias Varlin, both in his studio and his private life.

I had selected about 225 images, no cropping at all, as a FIRST SKETCH. 1973.
