In French, translated in full: "I will be much honored to have you visit on Thursday at around 11 in the morning, if that time works for you. I'm nothing but happy to enter into a relationship [probably business] with you and your father. Sincerely yours ". Émile Friant (1863-1932) was a French artist who created works in charcoal, oil, and other media. Growing up in a commune, his family friends took partial custody of him and brought him to Nancy, France where he began studying at the local high school. However, he soon requested to leave school to study art. Under the guidance of Louis-Théodore Devilly, Friant learned the art of still life and landscape painting. From 1874-1923 his works were exhibited in multiple countries and salons. Friant was appointed a professor of painting in 1923 at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France, promoted to the position of commander in the Legion of Honor, and made a member of the Institut de France. Toned. Lightly stained throughout. Pencil notes (unknown hand) in upper left corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
