Autograph Letter Signed: "F Bartholdi", in black ink, 4½x3½ (front and verso). In full: "My dear friend, I thank you for your kind invitation and I will enjoy spending some time with you. I am sending you too, the history of the Palais de Longchamps which I had spoken to you about, and some information about my work that might interest you [items not included]. There is an original study about the trusses of the Statue of Liberty. Please accept my sincere friendship and gratitude". French sculptor Frederic Bartholdi (1834-1904) is best known for his statue of Liberty Enlightening the World, more popularly known as the Statue of Liberty, which arrived in New York harbor on June 17, 1885 aboard the French steamer Isère. The statue was designed by Bartholdi as a tribute to America's freedom, liberty, and self-determination, created at a time when the French were having their own issues of independence. Bartholdi, who had personally chosen the location for the statue, unveiled his creation, a gift from the people of France to America, on October 28, 1886. An accomplished sculptor, he created many other works besides the Statue of Liberty that reside in his home country of France, though none have become as symbolic. Slight soiled with stray ink marks. Fine condition.
