Jack (John) Wesley and Hannah Green

John Wesley (1928-) and Hannah Green.
With John Wesley and Hannah Green.

Jack and Hannah spent their summers in a house down the Rue Charlemagne, the old road the pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela would walk up to reach the Conques Sainte-Foy Abbey-church. It's the house on the left where they stayed. Jack had a sign on the gate reading 'folding boat company' - I liked that. Every day he jogged along the Dourdou.

I met Jack again in 1993 at his his retrospective show in the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; the museum was selling his new silkscreen, "Getting off the subway at St. Tropez" of which edition I bought the first one. Jack signed it for me during the opening, as he hadn't gotten to the signing part yet.

Hannah was working on her book about Sainte Foy de Conques, "Little Saint". She had been working on it since the seventies, gathering information from historical sources and stories about the saint told by the local people. Hannah worked on the book until her death in 1996. She originally planned for a three volume work, but had to compress it into one volume in a race with cancer which caught up with her before "Little Saint" was published in 2001, five years after her death.
