Pissaro, Camille (1830-1903) French Impressionist, one of the masters of the movement. A teacher and friend to Gauguin and Cassatt, he was a favorite of his fellow artists and the only artist represented in all eight Impressionist exhibits. A devoted husband and father.

Autograph Letter Signed ("C. Pissaro"). In French. Two pages, large octavo, [Paris], May 14, 1897. To his wife: "Ma chere femme". Transmittal fold, ink smeared by author, remnants of penmanship exercise on the bottom of the second page, minor soil, otherwise fine.

Addressed to a London home, Pissaro reports on a doctor's visit for one of their children and mentions his work "…I wrote to Portier to ask him to conclude the painting deal at 800 francs…" (Pissaro is probably referring to Auguste Portier, the noted art dealer). It was in 1897 that Pissaro created his urban landscape series of the Boulevard Montmartre and he may be referring to one of these works.
Estimated Value $1,500 - 1,750.
