Monet (Claude)

Autograph letter signed ("Claude Monet") to his landlord Alexandre Flament, in French, reading "I have meant to write to you for a long time about my belongings that are still with you and especially about my large painting that is probably very troublesome for you because of its size. Can you please be so kind as to give me news about the painting because I am now better paid here and I believe it would be possible for me to relieve you from keeping it. As I have to organise myself in the near future, I would be very grateful if you could answer me as soon as possible and also inform me of what I still owe you", bound, two pages, light yellowing, 8vo, Giverny, January 10, 1884.

***LETTER BY IMPRESSIONIST PAINTER CLAUDE MONET REGARDING HIS PAINTING "LE DEJEUNER SUR L'HERBE". Monet painted Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe between 1865 and 1866 in response to the 1863 work of the same title by Édouard Manet. It remained mostly unfinished but two large fragments are now in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
