Incidentally, Miller himself had visited the Clignancourt flea market during his first two months living in Paris in 1930. In a letter to Emil Schnellock from April 1930, he asks his friend if he'd like him to pick up "those art objects" from Clignancourt ... "Do you want me to plunge? And for how much?--only on African and Oceanic things--fetiches, masks, statuettes, etc." (Letters To Emil, p.41)
And this (p. 48): "Flea market, Clignancourt - veritable objects of art for a song, including Oceanic, African, Melanesian, Siamese, etc!!"
