Large nose, tip, thin, "rubbing his hands like the flies," as well, remarked Jeanne Facchetti. With a flair to convince the billionaires.

Grand nez, boute, maigre, "se frottant les mains comme les mouches" ainsi que le disait Jeanne Facchetti. Avec un flair pour convaincre les milliardaires. Il à introduit la peinture américaine en France et repéré les rares peintres intéressants de Paris. Chaque fois qu'on lui présentait un peintre, il demandait : "Est-il riche?"
