BiographyOf Spanish origin, Jaime Saguer works as a farmhand in the Pyrénées-Orientales. He is sectioned in Limoux in 1942, after being charged with “aggravated assault and public order offences.” Notes by his physician, Dr. Dagand, record intellectual backwardness and alcoholism. Discharged from psychiatric hospital in 1960, Saguer is placed in an old people’s home. He draws in lead pencil and coloring pencils on small lined or squared notebooks.
