MONET CLAUDE (1840-1926).
L.A.S. "Claude Monet", Giverny [April 8, 1906], to A.M. COLLE in Nancy; 2 pages in-8 in purple ink, envelope. Curious letter in which he rejects the title of Impressionist. [Michel-Auguste COLLE (1872-1949) was a painter from Lorraine, who painted many landscapes of his native region]. He received her two letters, "but being very busy" was unable to reply earlier. "What you ask me is very serious and delicate. I certainly do not want to refuse you, and only beg you to let me know in advance when you would like to come, because if I am at work, I will be unable to receive you, so that I can set the day and time myself. And he adds in a postscript: "You seem to me to be very attached to this title of impressionist, which does not mean much and has led to so much nonsense being said.
