Bienvenu parmi nous M. Noel,
First, allow me to publicly apologise for the harsh (and in some case non founded) comments I posted about your work some months ago on this board. Someone have the right to post negative feedback but not to personally attack someone's integrity without being able to provide proof, that was a mistake on my part.
En espérant un jour pouvoir laver cette bévue dans l'absinthe,

As a new member, may I introduce me? (the forum will be kind
to excuse my poor english. I'm french as you know...)
Historian of art, I was between 1992 and 1996
the Maison Fournaise's first curator,
a memorial french landmark and museum.
Located on the Ile desImpressionnistes, the Restaurant Fournaise
is a typical guinguette (a place to dance near a river)
familiar to all art lovers in the world.
From its balcony overhanging the Seine, Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted in
1881, "The Luncheon of the Boating Party", which is today Phillips
Collection's masterpiece in Washington.
At Fournaise Museum, I offered in 1993 the opportunity to
Marie-Claude Delahaye to show, for the first time, her major pieces of her
collection around absinthe.
"Absinthe, myth & reality" exhibition was an
international sucess. Pepita Aris described it as an "Intoxicating
Enchantress" in the Daily Telegraph on 10 april. Benjamin Ivry asked
Lautrec in The European 21 january issue : "What's your Poison Henri?".
And Laura Colby concluded in The International Herald Tribuneon 2 april
: "In Artist Hangout, Show Distills Demon Absinthe".... (I don't quote french articles, cause
In 1994, I suggested and helped Marie-Claude Delahaye (whom
related all of that in her "Absinthe, muse des peintres" foreword) to
create a Museum dedicated to the Fée Verte in Auvers-sur-Oise.
Then, I wrote a little about Green Fairy ("Absinthe" and "Stupéfiant" reviews, and four books).
I also wrote books on cinema (History of Cinema in Color - 1995),
painting (The Canotiers Belle Epoque on the Seine - 1997)
or theater (Les Coquelin, Three Generations of Comedians - 1997).
I teach history of art in Academie Charpentier at Montparnasse
and organise exhibitions in museums.
That's all for today, cause I'm leaving for holidays. I'll say a little more at my return
about my books soon available in italian or deutsch and about my personnal website in construction
(thanks to my wife and sister-in-law)...
By the way, it's not a secret I'm working on a new book dedicated to best Absinthe's posters
(thanks to Peter, David, Dale, Ian, Ted and Justin and french people who helped me so much).
Is anyone have something rare about the subject, just tell me the way he wants...
