Notes:
"Lesseman proudly announces on the very first page of his autobiography: 'I am the sculptor Anton Lesseman. I am not the invention of anybody.' [p. 10] This statement is untrue - Lesseman is the invention of Paul Becker, an artist who makes use of language, narrative and literature to allude to sculpture and sculptural thinking"--Page 2.
