NOTE • « But what about the noise of crumpling paper which he used to do in order to paint the series of "Papiers froisses" or tearing up paper to make "Papiers dechires?" Arp was stimulated by water (sea, lake, and flowing waters like rivers), forests. »
(Letter from Greta Ströh, director of the Arp Foundation, in a letter to Cage at the origin of the title)
