Oui, Raymond (Raymond R.), (1915-?), France


In about 1943, when around thirty, Raymond Oui, who has a serious mental handicap, is hospitalized in a psychiatric institution in Agen. Just as when he expresses himself orally, Raymond’s drawings in black lead and coloring pencils and ink continuously repeat the word “yes.”
