Notes: "In the Eragny Press Of Gardens, the Pissarros and Francis Bacon perform "tikkun olam", by using the art of design to repair and perfect the world around them. Form and content are merged here, pointing out a pathway through a garden to the Good Life of respect for one's self, for others and for the natural environment."(Illustrating the Good Life, Grolier Club, #104).
