Pierre Le-Tan, Quelques collectionneurs, Paris, 2013, illustrated p. 54

This drawing is an illustration from the book written and illustrated by Pierre Le-Tan titled Quelques collectionneurs [Some Collectors], published by Flammarion in 2013 and accompanied by an exhibition at the Nicolas Schwed gallery in Paris.


This book, which is one of the few books written by Le-Tan, is dedicated to Toboré, the ‘patient companion of a collector’. Each chapter is devoted to a collector — real, imaginary, or with a slightly modified name — whom the author has supposedly met and whose collection he describes. Le-Tan devotes a chapter to himself and includes illustrations of some objects from his own collection.


Pages 54-60 describe the narrator’s meeting with Ghislain Mouret (pp. 54-60) in Tangier and adds that he ‘was one of those collectors whom one meets and then never sees again’. However, the narrator does see him again in Paris, and having seen the collection, he laments that ‘decorating and collecting rarely go hand in hand’.

Ce dessin est une illustration de l’ouvrage écrit et illustré par Pierre Le-Tan intitulé Quelques collectionneurs, publié par Flammarion en 2013 et accompagné d’une exposition chez Nicolas Schwed à Paris.


Ce livre, l’un des rares écrits par Le-Tan, est dédié à Toboré "patiente compagne d’un collectionneur". Chaque chapitre est consacré à un collectionneur, imaginaire, réel ou au nom légèrement modifié que l’auteur aurait rencontré et dont il décrit la collection. Le-Tan s’est consacré un chapitre à lui-même et a illustré dans cet ouvrage quelques objets de sa propre collection.


Les pages 54-60 décrivent la rencontre du narrateur avec Ghislain Mouret (pp. 54-60) à Tanger et ajoute que celui-ci "faisait partie de ces collectionneurs que l’on croise et qu’on ne revoit pas". Néanmoins le narrateur le revoit à Paris et, ayant vu la collection, déplore que "décoration, justement, et collection fassent rarement bon ménage".
