    Description

    Claude Monet Autograph Letter Signed "Claude Monet." One page of a bifolium, 4" x 6.5", Giverny, France; September 26, 1903. Composed in French with his signature purple fountain pen. Monet writes to Monsieur Gravereau, who supplied Monet with his preferred wine. In this letter, Monet orders "7 feuillettes red wine" along with 8 white, promising to return his empty drums.

    Oscar-Claude Monet (1840-1926) was a French painter, a founder of French Impressionist painting and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to open air landscape painting.

    Condition: Flattened mail fold, with a slight smear to end of the signature and at the "S" of the date at the top.
