CPLY. May-July 1961. Essay by Patrick Waldberg, translated by Joyce Reeves
(Introduction) 'There is a graphic sign which may be seen more and more frequently, hanging on the wall in the homes of several of the artists and intellectuals whose activities or discernment have exercised a direct influence on our age. This mark may be found on walls in the apartments of Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Hans Arp, René Magritte, as well as on those of a fair number of their spiritual heirs. It is the cipher ply which takes the place of a signature for a most unusual man, an artist who paints as W.C. Fields plays, or even as one imagines Harpo Marx dreams, and who is really called William Nelson Copley.'
