With an Original Ink Sketch by Camille Pissarro of His Infant Daughter

    Camille Pissarro (French Artist, 1830-1903). Original Pen Sketch ("croquis," or a quickly-done drawing or sketch) of an Infant. Initialed "C. P." at the bottom right. [n.p., 1893]. Approximately 3.5 x 2.25 inches. Mounted onto the verso of a carte de visite of Pissarro's son, Lucien Pissarro. With an ink note in Lucien Pissarro's hand and signed by him on the recto of the carte de visite: "portrait de Jeanne/-1893-/croquis de Camille Pissarro/[Lucien Pissarro's stylized "L.P." signature in an oval]". Some toning, thumbsoiling to sketch and carte, a line of glue residue at top of card (not affecting sketch), from where this was once mounted. Still, a charming sketch by a major French painter, and a lovely portrait of his daughter, Jeanne, when she was an infant.
    [Together With]: [John Rewald]. Camille Pissarro Letters to His Son Lucien. New York: Pantheon Books, [1943]. Second edition. Octavo. illustrated. Publisher's full red cloth, spine stamped in black and gilt. Spine sunned and scuffed, some wear to binding, tape residue and offsetting from front endleaves (presumably from where the sketch once resided). With the bookplate of H. (Harold) Stanley Marcus (1905-2002), former president of the luxury retail chain founded by his father and aunt, Neiman-Marcus, and a renowned art collector.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
