MARC CHAGALL.ALS: "Marc Chagall", 1p, 7¼x10½. New York, 1947 April 12. In French, not fully translated. Begins: "Dear Friends". Roughly translated, in part: "How are you?...It has not been a long time I received the N. of Cahneri of art which I have ordered from Chez Wehye. I am so grateful for your great sympathy. The paintings left very well and in general the whole number is imposing...Ida leaves soon for Paris. She will have, poor girl, much work...she has the head of a minister without speaking of her fine talent as an artist...." The Wehye Gallery is an important art gallery in New York City. Ida was Marc Chagall's daughter. Considered one of the most original and eminent figures in 20th century art, Chagall (1887-1985) was influenced by Cubism, Fauvism and Surrealism. His works, executed in a wide variety of media, from oils to stained glass, often featured subjects drawn from Russian village life, Jewish folklore and Hasidic mysticism. Slightly worn at upper edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
