Essay by Kasper König in english & german
Editor: Linn Lühn, Düsseldorf

´The first time I ever saw a work by H.C. Westermann, it was in a wonderfully compact exhibition called From Arp to Artschwager II at the humble New York gallery space of Richard Bellamy, the former founder of the legendary Green Gallery, and Noah Goldowsky, an antiquarian from Chicago. That was in 1967 and my fascination with his works hasn’t diminished since.´

Es gibt kaum eine bessere Einführung in die moderne Kunst als diesen ebenso humorvollen wie tiefgründigen Text eines Zeitzeugen, dessen persönliche Initiation in diese faszinierende und bisweilen bizarre Welt sich der Begegnung mit Berühmtheiten wie Man Ray, Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp und René Magritte verdankt. William Copley hatte als junger Mann ein Vermögen geerbt und nutzte das Geld, um kurz nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg in Beverly Hills eine Galerie zu eröffnen. Wirtschaftlich scheiterte das Unternehmen auf ganzer Linie, doch ohne es zu wissen, schrieb Copley mit diesem Versuch, den Eingeborenen von Hollywood etwas Kultur zu bringen, Kunstgeschichte. Copley war selbst Maler und verstand die Arbeits- und Denkweise seiner Vorbilder und Weggefährten. Dieser 1976 für die Ausstellung "Paris - New York" verfasste Essay schildert viele Episoden aus dem Leben der surrealistischen Künstler unverblümt und unterhaltsam aus der Perspektive eines jüngeren Kollegen, mit großer Nähe und intuitiver Anteilnahme.

There can hardly be a better introduction to modern art than this humorous yet insightful book by a contemporary personally admitted into this fascinating, occasionally bizarre world through his encounters with key figures such as Man Ray, Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp, and René Magritte. William Copley inherited a fortune as a young man and used his wealth to open a gallery in Beverly Hills shortly after World War II. Financially, the business was a flop, but Copley's attempt to bring culture to the natives of Hollywood won him a place in the annals of art history. Copley himself was a painter and could well understand the work and thought processes of his heroes and coevals. This essay, written in 1976 for the exhibition Paris - New York, frankly and engagingly depicts episodes in the lives of Surrealist artists from the perspective of a younger colleague in a portrayal that is at once revealing and intimate.
