Text in French. ""Les dessins et tableaux de Rene-Jean Clot ont fait revivre devant nos yeux des paysages auxquels je ne pense jamais sans emotion. Ils les ont fait revivre avec force, tels que nous les avons connus et aimes."" ""Les lignes qui suivent, puisees dans le journal de marche de mon aide de camp, animeront ces toiles et les situeront dans le temps et dans l'espace mieux qu'aucun discours. Elles ne sont pas de la litterature, simplement des notes au jour le jour, brutalement jetees sur le papier. Elles ont les qualites et les defauts d'un document."" (""Rene-Jean Clot's drawings and paintings have brought to life landscapes that I never think emotionally without, they have revived them with force, as we have known and loved them."" ""The lines that follow, taken from my aide-de-camp's diary, will animate these canvases and place them in time and space better than any other speech.They are not literary day by day, brutally written on paper, they have the qualities and defects of a document.
