MONET CLAUDE (1840-1926).
L.A.S. "Your old man who loves you Claude", London 12 February 1901, to HIS WIFE ALICE; 4 pages in-8 on the letterhead of the Savoy Hotel.
On his work in London, and on one of his paintings of the Bassin aux nymphéas. "Good, very good day today, superb weather, I worked hard and better I think, so I am less tired than when things go wrong. The weather was a big part of it and I would need a few days in a row with this same weather. But is it possible here"... He is happy to know it better... "
I see that I did not explain myself well about the painting for Durand [DURAND-RUEL], and I would like to make sure that there is no mistake if he asks for it. It is a painting of the basin, The bridge with water iris in the first plant, it appeared at the Durand exhibition and is signed, so there is no room for error, and if it is not in evidence in the studio, it is easy to find in one of the boxes".
Then he evokes "the immense advertisement of the Feydeau sale, it is really too much to show the purpose, and I would like it to be a black oven. Besides, there have already been sales which, according to the Figaro, were hardly successful"...
