Rafael Argullol. Philosopher and writer. Barcelona, 1949


A magic word for the eternally youthful, but also for joyful, non-conformist and generous creative vigour. In Oscar Tusquets, joviality, as well as talent, is a style which permeates all his work, conferring on it that unique blend of controlled madness and luminous good sense. So vital for art, joviality is also indispensable for friendship. Thus, those blessed with it, like Oscar, also possess the secret talisman which makes our lives more pleasurable.
