    Many thanks to Suzay for posting this amazing collection. I discovered Despujols in 2006 preparing the manuscript of “Earth in Flower – The Divine Mystery of the Cambodian Dance Drama.” His portrait of “The dancer Saem” embodied the book’s concept so well that the author and I choose it as the cover ( His entire collection is at The Meadows Museum in Louisiana.

    I want to contact some of Jean Despujols children, say :
    Anne Lenore Despujols, Jack Despujols (who was engineer at Gulf Corporation (Houston, Texas), Paulette Despujols. I was a friend of Anne Lenore and she wrote to me some letters, the last one in march 1965 to tell me about her father’s death. If you can find adresses I will contact them before to go to Shreveport and look at his paintings. I have 3 oil paintings by Jean, and many letters written during the World war 1914-1918 to my grand mother who was his girl friend (and more…) in Bordeaux when he was at the school of Beaux-Arts. In fact, I am his “petit fils” since my mother, France Aubert, was his “organic daughter”, issued from a “love affair” with my grand-mother, Thérèse Aubert. I keep also some letters dated from 1957 to 1962 that he sent to my mother, asking every time news about his former love, my grand mother. Many thanks for your help.
