Keith Botsford
Józef Czapski: A Life in Translation

Józef Czapski (1896-1993) was an artist, author, critic, and one of the founders of the influential Polish emigré monthly Kultura (published in Paris until 2000). But who was the real Czapski? This cahier is a bold attempt by Keith Botsford to answer this question. Violating convention, he attempts to write Czapski's autobiography, or a ‘biography from within’. Besides Czapski's own words, twelve of his paintings bear testimony to this momentous life.
