Text of the print in english version :


"I was two. It happened on a beach-Deauville, I think. My mother had entrusted me to a group of children. I was the youngest and they had to get rid of me : that was their game. They huddled together, whispering, then burst out laughing and scattered when I tried to come near. And I ran after them, shouting : « Wait for me ! Wait for me ! »

I can still remember."

Text of the print in french version.

"J’avais deux ans. Cela se passait sur une plage, à Deauville je crois. Ma mère m’avait confiée à un groupe d’enfants. J’étais la plus petite, ils jouèrent à se débarrasser de moi. Ils se groupaient, se parlaient en chuchotant, éclataient de rire et détalaient dès que j’approchais d’eux. Moi, je leur courais après et je hurlais «attendez-moi, attendez-moi ».
Ça m’est resté."
