Description

    Camille Pissarro Autograph Letter Signed "C. Pissarro." One page, 8.25" x 10" (sight), on "Grand Hotel de Berneval" letterhead, [Berneval-le-Grand, France], July 12, 1900, to his son, Rodolphe. The Impressionist painter writes, in part: "...I hope from what you tell me of the colics you were suffering, it is not appendicitis. Your mother came yesterday and we looked at chalets and are still making our choice. Do not forget to tell me Dr. Simon's opinion...do not worry about appendicitis, it would not be the same in your case as in Georges..." Pissarro, considered the "Father of the Impressionists," died three years later. Smoothed folds with slight staining above the date. Else fine. Matted and framed with a photograph of the artist and a plate with a short, engraved biography to an overall size of 25.5" x 26.5".

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
