Last Villeglé stolen by night from Le Mur !

... or the Price of Fame !

Jacques Villeglé, born Jacques Mahé de la Villeglé (1926, Quimper, Brittany)
is a
French mixed-media artist, famous for his alphabet with symbolic letters
decollage with ripped or lacerated posters.
(more on wiki or/and official website)

Exceptionally, last "Le Mur" opening was on Thursday and Jacques, 82, was there...
see the nice leafar's Flickr set.

but a couple of days later, on Saturday night, someone cut off and robbed
the collage, valued
at some hundred thousand Euros.

So, after a two days' exhibit, Villeglé's poster desappeared and Martha Cooper's
was back to surface...

That's the way street art goes on.
