The first volume of Rémy Zaugg's complete writings (1963-1968/1988): entitled The Making of a painting, this transcript of Zaugg's diary revolves around the notion of artistic discourse, and how it is directly influenced by paintings.
"My faith in the school of arts only lasted a few hours. First of all, what was the point of drawing vertical lines with a pencil, and nothing but verticals? Then horizonals and nothing but hroizontals? I was completely disoriented (...) The perceptive sketches of the painting La Maison du pendu by CÚzanne are assembled here under the title The Making of a painting were made by a student between 1963-1968."
Second edition of the book published in 1989 (ISBN 978-2-84066-155-9).
