From Sweden with Love

Three pictures from a Swedish collector of Fritz. Isn't the bottom one great? it's nice to see that a few people who knew Fritz are finding their way to this site. Scroll down, there's a link to the half-hour long documentary of Fritz' paintings directed by Angel Mejías somewhere further down the page.

A Notebook

Some drawings from a notebook from Fritz. The pictures cover a visit to Peru and a return to Spain: around 1980.
There's a story he writes at one point:
'Lima - no money - wretched place. Called Irene with last funds - she is leaving me stranded in tele station while she straightens - her mind - ehhh - another goof
Got Cliff - if he fucks up - am indubitably shafted.
My timing is off as usual - didn't call Steve - will try - Mon. No go. Cliff didn't get money off am Shafted'.

The portrait above has a rare Fritz signature on the bottom right.

Fritz in Florida

A collector in Florida sends me these two pictures. Fritz passed through there on his way back to Spain after a visit to the Amazon in 1980.
