His life and work. Compiled (with the co-operation of his widow and publisher) by Loftus Wigram. Produced by Henry Reed
The producer has supplied the following information, which the Editor hopes will be found profitable : Gustavus Heck carved for himself, during the short time he lived, an outstanding niche in the Halls of Fame. In spite of this, little is known about his early life and struggles; the recent unearthing of his correspondence with the notorious Ariadne Pirbgsht has cast a new and unexpected light on this bizarre genius. The Inct that Heck composed solely with his feet mpde him as a matter of course somewhat temperamental, but through all nis vagaries the soul of a sincere and brilliantly creative artist shone, so as to illuminate not only his work but also allthose with whom he Came in touch.
