CAMILLE PISSARRO
Letter pertaining to family as well as the artist Monet, written from Paris to his wife
Autograph Letter signed: "C. Pissaro", 1p, 5¼x8¼. Paris, 1896 May 10. To “My dear Julie, whom he married in 1871. In French, translated in full: "Just a few words to let you know that I went to pick up Cocotte and we went to the Champs Elysées exposition, and after lunch today we will go to the acclimation garden, which ought to be superb at this time of year; we'll have dinner there and then Cocotte will go back to her boarding school. She is feeling very well and sends her love to you as well as her friend Enide, with greetings to master Rodolphe./ Yesterday I received a letter from Esther in English- she is just like her mother ; also a letter from Georges which I am sending you. I just received the one you sent me. I am going to arrange to leave here for Eragny on Thursday, unless some hitch prevents me. I will let you know./ Nothing more to tell you except that the weather is beautiful, and the barometer indicates rain- if that can give you any pleasure. No doubt the people of Eragny are fervently praying for a good deluge./ Monet did not come to the exposition. I believe that Durand intends to extend the show for a few more days. I noticed Mr. Depeaux at the Champs Elysées exposition. I did not have an opportunity to speak to him. I'll probably see him tomorrow. See you soon. Cocotte and I sent our love. Your loving husband". A French painter of the Impressionist school, Pissarro (1930-1903) was famed for his landscapes and later cityscapes. A friend of fellow Impressionists including Monet and Cézanne, he helped organize the exhibitions of Impressionist work, the first in 1874, which helped popularize the new style. Pissarro painted over 1,600 landscapes and town scenes and nearly 200 prints. In his later years, which were among his most prolific, he was bitter over what he called a sell-out to public demand by other Impressionist artists, including Monet and Gauguin. A devoted family man (he has written "your loving husband" above his signature), Pisarro's large brood included daughter Jean Cocotte, who is mentioned in this letter, and son Lucien, an artist in his own right. Lucien helped his father prepare for upcoming art shows while working in a Paris lithographer's shop. Lightly foxed, lightly creased. Overall, fine condition.
