'[I] stood out of the way over in the corner in a white coat, trying to concentrate as Karl bopped about his enormous glass-topped palette, slashing away at his herbaceous borders with his oily brushes, chatting brightly about the complicated snobberies of the art racket. A magic moment.' -From the Foreword by Dick Frizzell
