The French painter, famed for his nudes in outdoor settings, arranges a lunch meeting.
Autograph Letter signed: Paul Chabas", 1 page, 8¼x10½. Berthier [France], June 25, 1926. Written entirely in blue pencil In French, loosely translated: "Dear Sir, I will be delighted to see you again with Mr. Vorily, at my house, next Tuesday, June 29, at eleven o'clock. My very cordial remembrances". French painter and illustrator Paul Émile Chabas (1869-1937) won a gold medal at the Universal Exposition in Paris (1900). He was most famous for his paintings of young female nudes in natural settings. His "September Morn" (1912), caused a sensation in the US when Anthony Comstock, head of the New York Society for Suppression of Vice, declared it immoral and sought to have it banned. Reproductions of the painting sold briskly thereafter. Chabas was President of the Society of French Artists (1925-1935) and a member of the French Academy, awarded the Legion of Honor. Multiple mailing folds. Creased and toned. Corners lightly creased. Pencil notes (unknown hand) at top margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
