In 1975, while standing on the steps of the Grubstake just off of Polk on Pine Street in San Francisco, Mark Mulleian would meet Dean Glassbrook, at a critical point in Mulleian''s life. When Glassbrook would turn the corner and find himself starring into the glistening of a gem ruby (sewn on the upper thigh of a Levis), and the shimmer of a Moroccan coin necklace, medallion, leads Dean to immediate eye to eye contact with Mulleian. In fascination, as a freelance writer, Dean Glassbrook would write several published newspaper articles on the artist through the late 70's.
A French aristocrat and San Francisco eccentric, artist and photographer, who lived for awhile in Paris, Versailles, and the south of France, where he found unlimited subject matter for his photography. Janvier first discovered Mulleian's work at the Frank Gallery in 1970, where they would both eventually meet in 1971 and would become lifelong friends, a relationship in which worldviews, political analysis, creative processes and new ideas were shared in an inexhaustible dialogue for over thirty years.
