History and Purpose of the Association The Association Pour Que l’Esprit Vive (Let the Spirit Live) was created in 1932. Its founder, Armand Marquiset (1900-1981), was a twentieth-century pioneer in the development of charitable foundations in France. He played a leadership role in bringing to public awareness a large spectrum of social problems and elaborated a number of approaches to solve them. A man of vision and action, he also created a number of charitable and philanthropic organizations: — Les petits frères des Pauvres (The Little Brothers of the Poor) in 1946, whose work is mostly devoted to the elderly.— Frères des Hommes (Brothers of Humanity) in 1965, an association for developing nations.— Les Frères du Ciel et de la terre (Brothers of Heaven and earth) in 1968, for isolated people.

Artworks, Exhibitions & Biography For the past decade, Beatrice Caracciolo has experimented with a variety of materials, starting with her trademark charcoal drawings in which collaged elements often come to the fore. She has developed a series of works in zinc, a medium which bears witness to the passage of time. Of greyish appearance—the colour of time gathered—the recycled zinc used by the artist is the product of chemical reactions provoked by its exposure to natural elements.
