    Description

    Claude Monet. Two Autograph Letters Signed. "Claude Monet."
    1) Two pages (of a bifolium) in French on Monet's personal stationary, 8" x 10.25", Giverny; November 21, 1903. Addressed to the French painter Lucien Pissaro, Monet writes, "Since my letter crossed yours, I waited a day to respond thinking that perhaps I would have to come there. Now I can let you know that you and your brother can come here next Tuesday. Come in the morning and we will have lunch and chat. Send me a note to confirm this and letting me know the time you will arrive at Vernon so someone can come pick you up. My warmest to your poor mother." 2) One page (of a bifolium) in French on Monet's personal stationary, 8" x 10.25", Giverny; December 6, 1903. Like the first letter, this one is addressed to "Mon cher Lucien" Pissaro. Monet writes, "I agree that it's most prudent not to get involved with an exhibition abroad until the one in Paris has taken place. I'll send you back the letters of Monsieur Elias [?]."

    Lucien Pissaro (1863-1944), knew Monet and many other impressionists from his childhood, when they visited his father, the impressionist painter Camille Pissaro (1830-1903). An excellent association.

    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: The letters have mild toning, some rubbing, occasional ink offset, horizontal and vertical folds; otherwise good to very good.
